STROKE IN YOUNG Dr. A.Bhagavati Rao Department of Gen. Medicine Guide –Prof. Dr M.Parvatisam M.D Co-guide – Prof. Dr.S.V.Ramanamurty M.D


INTRODUCTION Third leading cause of death following cardiac and cancer related diseases. Surviving it means living with some amount of disability. Leading cause of disability 31 % need assistance for daily living. 20% need assistance for walking 16% need admission into long time facility. Direct ( treatment ) costs and indirect ( lost productivity ) costs of stroke alarming.


REVIEW OF LITERATURE Western countries annual incidence 111-180 per 100,000 population,and 9- 28 per young population. Point prevalence 400-700 per 100,000 population,150-200 per 100,000 population. According to an Indian studies 2 yr prevalence and annual incidence rates are 84 and 13 per 100,000 population. Difference due to different population structure.

Slide 4:

Cerebrovascular diseases account for 0.9-4.5% of all admissions. In other way 9.2 – 30% of all neurological diseases. These figures are much less compared with those of USA. Figures closer or more if compared for only adult population

Slide 5:

Prevalence of stroke in Indian population was found to be 18.8%-32%. Causes being cardiac ,carotid artery thrombosis,lipid & coagulation abnormalities, arteritis , intracranial tuberculosis, oc pill use in females ,hypertension, diabetes, cigarette smoking amongst others. Whatever may be the cause it was found that stroke prevalence in Indian population is higher than other countries.


AIMS AND OBJECTIVES To study in detail the clinical presentation and outcome of cases of stroke in the age group of 15-40 yrs by taking detailed history and thorough clinical examination. To correlate the disease with radiological imaging studies (CT & MRI ),carotid doppler,2Decho, homocysteine levels, lipid profile, fundus examination & autoimmune profile to determine the aetiology wherever necessary. To follow the outcome in the cases


MATERIAL AND METHODS The study will include the patients presenting with stroke in between the ages of 15 - 40 yrs that are admitted into the dept. of medicine and neurology in Swatantra Multispeciality hospital,Rajahmundry during the period from October 2009 – November 2011. In all cases the provisional diagnosis will be made by taking the detailed history & clinical examination as per the profoma. Outcome will be assessed by using Bogousslavsky criteria. Depending upon the clinical scenario relevant investigation will be done.
