Özet

Objective: The vast majority of ischemic strokes occur due to atherosclerosis. Although the precise mechanism is unknown, high homocysteine (HM) levels are considered to play a role in the development of atherosclerosis. In this study, the relationship between high HM and carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT), as an early predictor of atherosclerosis, is evaluated in patients with ischemic stroke.
