Patients with isolated motor or sensory deficits, or sensorimotor strokes or ataxic hemiparesis were classified in the lacunar infarct (LACI) group and those with brainstem or cerebellar signs in the posterior circulation infarct (POCI) group.
Severe ipsilateral carotid stenosis was found in 16 (16%; 95% CI 9-23%) of the PACI group, four (4%; 0-8%) of the TACI group, none (0%; 0-4%) of the LACI group and one (4%; 0-8%) of the POCI group ([chi square] P [is less than] 0.05).
Complete carotid occlusion was found on portable Doppler in 28 (28%; 19-37%) of the TACI group compared with only 13 (13%; 6-20%) of the PACI group, three (3%; 0-7%) of the LACI group and none (0%; 0-14%) of the POCI group ([chi square] P [is less than] 0.05).
Atrial fibrillation was found in 30 (30%; 95% CI 21-39%) of the TACI group, 13 (13%; 6-20%) of the PACI group, five (6%; 0-10%) of the LACI group and two (8%; 0-13%) of the POCI group ([chi square] P [is less than] 0.001).

TACI, total anterior circulation infarct: LACI, lacunar infarct; POCI, posterior circulation infarct.
Furthermore, there was a significant difference in the prevalence of ipsilateral and contralateral carotid disease in the PACI and TACI groups, but not in the LACI or POCI groups, suggesting that ipsilateral carotid stenosis is an important causative (rather than coincidental factor) in total and partial anterior circulation infarct but not in lacunar or posterior circulation infarct.
The OCSP classification divided the 305 patients into 100 with TACIs (33%), 101 with PACIs (33%), 80 with LACIs (26%) and 24 with POCIs (8%).
