Creator/Principal investigator(s):

Ola Hjelmgren - University of Gothenburg, Sahlgrenska Academy, Institute of Medicine, Department of Molecular and Clinical Medicine orcid

Description:

The datamaterial consists of 445 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and a matched control group of 445 patients without diabetes, who had all suffered their first stroke or TIA.
The aims of the material is to study if retinopathy increases the risk of stroke recurrence in stroke patients with type 2 diabetes. Also, to study if stroke patients with type 2 diabetes have an increased risk of stroke recurrence compared to non-diabetics and if stroke patients with type 2 diabetes, regardless of retinopathy, have a higher incidence of carotid stenosis.
