As the pandemic has raged on, there has been more and more evidence to suggest a link between COVID patients having a higher risk for strokes. However, most recently, the American Heart Association published this study
about the link between ischemic strokes and COVID 19.
It found that most patients who both had COVID and underwent an ischemic stroke had other risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, atrial fibrillation, and congestive heart failure. However, admittedly, this is a new phenomenon, and more research at a larger scale needs to be done. What we are wondering is what do you, fellow physicians think about this?
