Table 1 Baseline parameters of 15 patients with microangiopathic ischemic stroke and 22 control group persons and the mfVEP subgroup of 13 microangiopathic ischemic stroke patients and 13 controls. Absolute numbers and percentages or median with interquartile range are provided for demographics, risk factors and visual acuity
