Neuro News Roundup: Stroke Outcomes

Studies include stroke risk with epilepsy, genetic predisposition for ischemic stroke, and dysphagia screening in stroke patients.

New studies on stroke include the following highlights: epilepsy may be an indication of hidden cerebrovascular disease in elderly patients; a model to predict genetic predispositions may provide valuable information about an individual’s risk of ischemic stroke; and about one in 5 patients with acute ischemic stroke are not screened for documented dysphagia, putting them at risk for poorer outcomes.
