Risk factors such as hypertension and diabetes mellitus appear to be more prevalent in blacks and Caribbean Hispanics, whereas atrial fibrillation and coronary artery disease are more prevalent in Caucasians (23,24). Subtype-Specific Stroke Outcomes In the OCSP study, the subtypes displayed some distinct patterns of mortality, disability, and recurrence.
