Younger adults experiencing more ischemic strokes, CV risk factors

April 26, 2017

Even with the decrease of stroke mortality rates in older adults, hospitalization rates for ischemic stroke and traditional stroke risk factors are on the rise in young adults, according to a study in JAMA Neurology.

Researchers analyzed data of patients aged 18 to 64 years from the National Inpatient Sample from 1995 to 2012. Age groups were defined as the following: 18 to 34 years, 35 to 44 years, 45 to 54 years and 55 to 64 years. The combination of CV risk factors, including diabetes, hypertension, obesity, lipid disorders and tobacco use, were reviewed from hospitalization data from 2003 to 2012.
