Getting to the Heart of Stroke™: Stroke in Younger Women

Drs. Eliza Miller, Jose Fernando Triana, and Virginia Howard introduce the epidemiology of stroke in younger women with a focus on women of reproductive age and discuss the work-up of spontaneous cervical artery dissection as a common cause of stroke in young women, and the consideration of hypertension as a top modifiable risk factor for stroke. Learn about how hypertension is often underdiagnosed in younger women, the importance of assessing and monitoring blood pressure and how to deliver guideline-based management of hypertension, especially during pregnancy.

Getting to the Heart of Stroke™: Long Term Heart Monitoring

Dr. Robert Canby, Dr. Rawan Albadareen, and Dr. Dhanunjaya R. Lakkireddy discuss ECG monitoring for AFib following ischemic stroke. Improve outcomes for individuals who have experienced an ischemic stroke by utilizing long-term ECG monitoring to identify AFib and initiate anticoagulation to prevent subsequent strokes where necessary. Learn about the role of catheter ablation, left atrial appendage occlusion and new Factor XI Inhibitors in patients with stroke and AFib. Understand access to care issues and the impact of race, gender, and socioeconomic status on stroke care.
