How to detect STROKE in young women ? This question has lived in the Dr. Bernard P. Chang the time of a study. His research interests have focused on the results psychological and cardiovascular post-event acute medical such as stroke and acute coronary syndrome.

Multiple opportunities

His work suggests that multiple opportunities exist to improve the detection and treatment of STROKE type ischemic in young women.
These are opportunities in terms of knowledge : causes (dissection of cervical arteries, embolism of the heart, and thrombosis), risk factors (birth control, smoking, migraine, childbirth, auto-immunity and diabetes), differential diagnoses (migraine, hypoglycemia, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, etc.) and treatments (thrombolysis, endovascular treatments, etc.).
The authors propose decision rules clinical, educational campaigns designed to educate young women and the consideration of preventive strategies to lead to interventions that may improve outcomes among young people.

Towards a future predictive

The results support the need to increase transparency, so that care is effective, cost efficient and of high quality can be provided to all of these young women.
“As for the other processes of the thromboembolic disease, this study highlights the importance of recognizing the risk factors for non-athéromateux in premenopausal women that may predispose them to STROKE,” says Andrew W. Asimos, a professor in the department of emergency medicine.
In fact, the risk factors, the exploration of their existence in young women can help to take account of the risk of STROKE, even with clinical presentations more subtle.

Machine learning and artificial intelligence, integrating more and more electronic medical record, the researchers anticipate a future in which clinicians will be able to anticipate this kind of pathology.
