Abstract

Stroke in young adults is a markedly heterogeneous disease, and remains an understudied phenomenon. While advances are being made in our understanding of the pathophysiology of its underlying conditions, treatment concerns are controversial, and clinical trials are sorely lacking. This review presents an overview of some of the relevant management issues in hypercoagulable states, migraine, patent foramen ovale, vascular dissection and venous sinus thrombosis.
