Etiologic Evaluation of Ischemic Stroke in Young Adults: A Comparative Study between Two European Centers


Introduction: Identifying the cause of ischemic stroke in young adults is often difficult. Our objective was to compare the etiologic diagnostic strategy for ischemic stroke in young adults between 2 European centers and investigate the influence of workup variations in the diagnosed etiologies. Patients and Methods: We included patients aged 18-55 years admitted for ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack to the stroke units of Santa Maria Hospital in Lisbon, Portugal, and Innsbruck University Hospital in Innsbruck, Austria, between 2014 and 2016.
