Diagnostic Work-Up

Ischemic stroke in young adults (15-45 years) is comparatively frequent, accounting for quite 10% of all first ischemic strokes). Its causes are heterogeneous and while it generally features a good prognosis, it's a big socioeconomic impact, including functional deficits and financial costs. An accurate etiological diagnosis is crucial for preventing new episodes and extra functional deficits. Currently, the foremost frequent causes of ischaemic stroke in young adults are cardioembolism, premature atherosclerosis, dissection of extracranial arteries, migraine, drugs and hypercoagulable states. However, it's not always been like this, as previously undetermined etiology was far and away the foremost prevalent. Although still common, undetermined etiology is now less frequent as a results of diagnostic improvements.
