Stroke in the Young

Description

Stroke in young adults is challenging. Investigation and treatment are often different in young stroke patients compared with older stroke patients because of differences in etiology, risk factors, and prognosis. Special considerations are needed among patients in the prime of life because of choice of education and vocation.

The purpose of this special issue is to focus on features of stroke in young adults with special relevance to clinical practice. We welcome reviews on epidemiology, etiology, treatment, and prognosis of stroke among young adults. Moreover, we are also interested in original articles on important aspects of stroke among young adults. The main topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Epidemiology
  • Risk factors
  • Etiology
  • Patent foramen ovale
  • Cervical artery dissection
  • Migraine and cerebral infarction
  • Pregnancy and puerperium
  • Oral contraceptives and stroke
  • Fabry's disease
  • Thrombophilic disorders
  • Vasculitis
  • Short-term prognosis (mortality and vascular events)
  • Long-term prognosis (mortality and vascular events)
  • Cognitive function after stroke
  • Poststroke epilepsy
  • Thrombolysis
  • Secondary preventive treatment
  • Childhood and stroke
