Table 4 Association between the pattern of stenosis and leukoaraiosis in large-artery-disease group.

From: The leukoaraiosis is more prevalent in the large artery atherosclerosis stroke subtype among Korean patients with ischemic stroke

  Leukoaraiosis   
  Present (n = 170) Absent (n = 127) P value  
Distribution of stenosis    0.080  
   Mixed (n = 101) 46 (45.5) 55 (54.5) 0.245a 0.023b
   Intracranial (n = 144) 58 (40.3) 86 (59.7) 0.070b  
   Extracranial (n = 52) 14 (26.9) 38 (73.1)   
Number of stenotic lesions    0.019  
   Multiple (n = 155) 71 (45.8) 84 (54.2)   
   Single (n = 142) 47 (33.1) 95 (66.9)
