Abstract: Objective To investigate the characteristics of pattern factors of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) of symptomatic cerebral artery stenosis (SCAS). Methods The patients diagnosed with cerebral artery stenosis (CAS, n=140) were chosen from Out-patient and In-patient Department in Chinese Medicine Hospital of Hubei Province from Dec. 2015 to June 2018. The information of CAS severity, past medical history, clinical symptoms and TCM pattern factors were collected. The patients were divided, according to clinical symptoms, into SCAS group (n=118) and non-SCAS group (n=22). The characteristics of TCM pattern factors were observed and analyzed in 2 groups. SCAS group was divided, according to CAS severity, into mild CAS group, moderate CAS group and severe CAS group. The characteristics of TCM pattern factors were analyzed in all groups. Results Wind pattern was the most common type of TCM pattern factor of SCAS (P<0.05), and they were positively correlated to each other. The percentage of wind pattern was the highest in mild CAS group and moderate CAS group. The common symptoms of wind pattern included tongue trembling, wiry pulse, dizziness and rapid changes of illness. Conclusion CAS was closely correlated to wind pattern (one of TCM pattern factors), and also related to phlegm and blood stasis. To understand and grasp the laws of TCM pattern factors of CAS can intervene early the patients with stroke risk factors and prevent them from stroke attack.
