Description: Faculty will review the incidence, risk factors, mechanisms, outcomes, and long-term impact after stroke in young adults and women. The program will focus on ischemic stroke; cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, hemorrhagic strokes, and pediatric/neonatal stroke will not be addressed given time constraints. Special emphasis will be given to cerebral arteriopathies such as dissection, vasculitis, and the reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndromes, as well as hormonal risk factors. We will address the unique multi-disciplinary needs of young adults and women with stroke.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to promptly recognize stroke in the young, develop cost-effective diagnostic strategies, deliver appropriate evidence-based acute/preventive treatment, and effectively manage the long-term consequences of stroke in young adults and women.
