Background: Complex aortic plaque is a potential cause of acute ischemic cerebrovascular disease, which needs timely identification. Also as a marker for systemic atherosclerosis, complex aortic plaque may be indicated by significant (≥50%) cervicocephalic atherosclerotic stenosis.

Methods: Aortic arch and cervicocephalic arteries were simultaneously evaluated using computed tomography angiography.
