Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 500 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Constitution of a Clinico-radiological Database and a Biobank for Patients With Lacunar Infarcts at Lariboisière Fernand-Widal and Sainte Anne Hospitals
Estimated Study Start Date : June 30, 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date : August 30, 2022
Estimated Study Completion Date : August 30, 2027

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to the occurrence of cognitive decline [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    diagnosis of mild or major neurocognitive disorder according to DSM5

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Recurrent stroke [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Time to the occurrence of one of the following event

  2. Dementia [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    diagnosis of major neurocognitive disorder (dementia) according to DSMV criteria

  3. Transient ischaemic attacks [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    " Transient ischemic attack " is a well recognized outcome in clinical trials in neurovascular disorders. We chose the most commonly definition of TIA according to international guidelinesorigin, without recent ischemic lesion on diffusion weighted imaging

  4. Cardiovascular events [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    myocardial infarction or cardiac failure

  5. Attacks of migraine with aura [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    according to international classification of headache disorders 2nd edition (ICHD-2)

  6. Memory complaints [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    any spontaneous complain of memory deficit, irrespective of the neuropsychological battery results

  7. Depression or other mood alterations [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    " HADS refers to Hamilton Anxiety and Depression Scale, as stated initially in the title. The scale comprises 14 questions with structured answers ranging from 0 to 3, leading to 2 scores (1 for anxiety, 1 for depression, ranging each from 0 to 21). In each case, larger values are considered to represent worse outcomes. Scores larger or equal to 11 correspond to thresholds to define anxiety and depression "

  8. Behavioural disorders [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    according to DSMV classification

  9. Balance disturbances [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    according to the SPPB battery

  10. Falls [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    according to patient's relatives recording

  11. Urinary complaints [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    any spontaneous complain from the patients and/or his relative
