Title Risk factors and prognosis of ischemic stroke in young patients in Uzbekistan
Author Dilshod Sagatov, Khurshidakhon Rasulova, Yakutkhon Madjidova
Abstract Between 2004 and 2008, we studied reasons and risk factors of ischemic stroke in 150 young patients (aged between 17-44 years), compared with those in elderly patients (n=70). According to our data, heredity, arterial hypertension, cerebral vasculitis, thyroid diseases, chronic alcoholism, smoking and long-term use of oral contraceptives are main risk factors of ischemic stroke in the young in Uzbekistan. However, relative risk of stroke in this group of patients is less than in elder patients. In 16% cases, usage of standard diagnostic measures does not lead to identification of the disease cause.
