Genetic associations of adult height with risk of cardioembolic and other subtypes of ischemic stroke: a mendelian randomization study in multiple ancestries

Abstract:
Background
Taller adult height is associated with lower risks of ischemic heart disease in mendelian randomization (MR) studies, but little is known about the causal relevance of height for different subtypes of ischemic stroke. The present study examined the causal relevance of height for different subtypes of ischemic stroke.
Methods and findings
Height-associated genetic variants (up to 2,337) from previous genome-wide association studies (GWA... Expand abstract
