Abstract

There is mounting epidemiologic evidence to support the relationship of lipids as a risk factor for ischemic stroke. We review epidemiologic and pathophysiologic evidence for such a link. Treatment of hyperlipidemia is addressed within the context of overall cardiovascular disease risk but also for stroke prevention.
