GONZALEZ DIAZ, María Elena  and  MORALES AGUIAR, Diana Rosa. Periodontal disease, is it one more risk factor for atherothrombotic ischemic stroke?. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2016, vol.32, n.1. ISSN 0864-2125.

The biologically plausible relation existing between the occurrence of cerebrovascular accidents, particularly of atherothrombotic ischemic stroke, and the presence of chronic immunoinflammatory periodontal disease is explained in a compacted way. The need for studies linking both entities is suggested for conciliating the results of the international researches with those carried out in our environment. The analysis of the periodontal state in patients from risk groups of victims on cerebrovascular disease is proposed. Considering the chronic immunoinflammatory periodontal disease as a risk factor for atherothrombotic ischemic stroke should pass from a question to a strategy.

Keywords : Atherothrombotic ischemic stroke; ictus; periodontal disease; risk factors.
