Abstract Purpose Observational cohort studies have reported a potentially increased risk of stroke in patients with epileptic seizures. Whether late-onset seizures merit primary stroke prophylaxis is not known, and more information on stroke risk is needed for the planning of RCTs. We performed a case-control study based on Swedish national registers to quantify the risk of stroke after epileptic seizures. Methods Cases ≤100 years of age with a first-ever stroke 2001–2009 were identified through...

BackgroundStatins are important components of secondary stroke prevention, but there is a concern they may increase the risk of intracerebral hemorrhage. Although this risk may have been overestima...

Sex disparities within the field of stroke, including subarachnoid hemorrhages (SAHs), have been in focus during the last 2 decades. It is clear that stroke incidence is higher in men, and also that men have their first stroke earlier than women. On the other hand, women have more severe strokes, mainly because cardioembolic strokes are more common in women. This leads to higher case fatality and worse functional outcome in women. It has often been pointed out that women more often have nontradi...

Objective To assess the association between a family history of epilepsy and risk of late poststroke seizures (LPS). Methods This register-based cohort study was based on adult patients from the Swedish Stroke Register (Riksstroke) with stroke from 2001 to 2012 and no prior epilepsy. LPS (>7 days after stroke) and epilepsy were ascertained in cases and in their first-degree biological relatives by cross-referencing Riksstroke, the Multi-Generation Register, and the National Patient Register. Res...

Abstract Purpose To describe the retention rates of first antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) in patients with poststroke epilepsy on a nationwide scale. Methods The Swedish Stroke Register, which has 94% coverage and high-resolution data on stroke, comorbidities, and disability, was cross-referenced to the National Patient Register, Drug Register, and Cause-of-Death Register. Patients with onset of AED-treated epilepsy after stroke in 2005–2010 were included. An algorithm based on prescription renewal i...

OBJECTIVES: Our purpose was to explore major vascular and bleeding outcomes in relation to risk and severity scores (ABCD2 or NIHSS) in patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA) or acute ischemic stroke (AIS). METHODS: This nationwide observational study was based on data from 4 national registries. Outcomes were assessed by Kaplan-Meier and Cox regression analyses. RESULTS: The total cohort comprised 21 268 patients (median age 73 years, 47.6% females). Based on ABCD2-score, the TIA-populat...
