VENEGAS, Pablo  e  OPORTO, Macarena. Aortic Arch Atheromatosis in Strokes. Rev. chil. neuro-psiquiatr. [online]. 2001, vol.39, n.3, pp.239-244. ISSN 0717-9227.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-92272001000300008.

Embolic cardiac source is a well-known risk factor for stroke. Nonetheless, during the last decades aortic arch atheromatosis has also been linked to strokes. We present two cases of patients who had suffered ischemic stroke. In both cases, aortic arch atheromatosis was the only predisposing factor. We agree with other medical researches published to date, that when aortic arch atheromatosis reaches a certain degree, it becomes an independent risk factor for acute ischemic stroke. It is treated through medical or surgical therapy, depending on patient's condition

Palavras-chave : ischemic stroke; aortic arch atheromatosi.
