  1. Parenthesis means proportion in percentage.
  2. *Chi-square test.
  3. The sum of each cell is not 162, because one could have acute symptomatic lesions in several locations simultaneously.
  4. Fisher’s Exact Test.
  5. Abbreviations: CMB (cerebral microbleeds), SVO (small vessel occlusion), LAD (large artery disease), UD (undetermined).
