  • Ipsilateral=Hemisphere ipsilateral to symptomatic arterial diseases; contralateral=the hemisphere contralateral to symptomatic arterial diseases.

  • Values are mean (SD).

  • 1-150 p<0.05;

  • 1-151 p=0.06 v controls (Mann-WhitneyU test).

  • 1-152 p<0.05, versus controls ( Kruskal-Wallis test with post hoc Mann-Whitney U test).
