abstract

  • Two-of-five young patients with ischemic stroke who underwent thrombophilia screening at our institution had at least 1 positive test but only one-in-twelve had a resultant change in clinical management. Neither cryptogenic stroke subtype nor other studied clinical factors were associated with a prothrombotic state.
