Factors that Cause Recurrent Stroke amongst Ischemic Stroke Patients: A Literature Review

Author(s) Jantararotai W.

Abstract In patients, recurrent stroke is prevalent and could be avoided, but at the same time, stroke could recur due to various reasons. These comprised the same causes as it caused the initial stroke and with the incorporation of risk factors, like smoking, obesity, and diabetes. The prevalence of recurrent stroke is considered high and could increase as time goes by. As mentioned in research on hemorrhagic stroke, the risk significantly increases overtime, up to 45% within 5 years and if exposed to stroke unit care, the risk will be reduced [1.] However, because of the vagueness in specificity of whether the causes are the same, this research aims to dive into the specific factors that will eventually lead to recurrent stroke. Moreover, this research aims to underscore activities or practices that would reduce the risk of recurrent stroke. Recurrent stroke is seen as a relatively dangerous disease since it could possibly increase the mortality rates in an individual. Therefore, finding the main causes will underscore the significance of preventing recurrent stroke amongst ischemic stroke patients. All data are gathered from different sources of articles and publications to conclude. As a result, factors that cause recurrent ischemic stroke in patients are hypertension, diabetes, smoking, high cholesterol, physical inactivity, alcohol consumption, genetic factors, age, gender, and more.
