This study investigated the association of vascular risk factors with asymptomatic and symptomatic ICAD using MR vascular wall imaging. Compared with controls, there was a positive association between hypertension and asymptomatic ICAD; and a positive association of hypertension, LDL, and diabetes and an inverse association of HDL with symptomatic ICAD (all p<0.05). Compared to asymptomatic ICAD, there was an inverse association between hyperlipidemia and symptomatic ICAD (p<0.001). We found that hypertension was a risk factor of asymptomatic ICAD and hypertension, diabetes and higher LDL were risk factors for symptomatic ICAD, whereas HDL was inversely associated with symptomatic ICAD.
