Retinal imaging may indicate stroke risk
Retinal imaging may indicate stroke risk (August 12, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From Singapore - A new report published in Hypertension finds that retinal imaging may reveal risk of stroke. Researchers followed nearly 3,000 high blood pressure patients for an average of 13 years. All of the participants had their retina photographed at the outset of the study. Nearly 150 patients suffered a stroke during the study. After adjusting for risk factors, researchers found that those with mild hypertensive retinopathy had a 35% increased risk of stroke. Those with moderate or severe hypertensive retinopathy had a 137% increased risk.
