  1. Silent cerebral infarction as a form of hypertensive target organ damage in the brain.

    Article - En anglais

    The incidence, number, size, and location of silent cerebral infarction on 0.1 T magnetic resonance imaging was investigated in 66 hypertensive patients (63+-9 years old; mean+-SD) and 42 age-matched normotensive subjects (61+-9 years old) to determine the clinical significanceof hypertension in silent cerebral infarction.

    Cerebrovascular risk factors and the severity of hypertensive changes in other major target organs were also investigated.

    The incidence of silent infarction in hypertensive patients (47%) tended to be higher than that of normotensive subjects (33%) and increased significantly with advancing age.
