Abstract

The significant association between heart rate variability (HRV) and the outcomes of stroke has led to a particular interest in alterations of HRV in stroke patients. To date, several clinical variables have been associated with alterations of HRV in stroke patients. The present study adds the new information that carotid atherosclerosis may affect HRV alterations in stroke patients.
