Description

Excerpt: The recent study by Tiamkao et al 1 that was published in the Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases concluded that “Stroke in the young generally has a favorable outcome” and that “factors associated with a nonfavorable outcome of stroke in the young were cardiac abnormalities and alcohol intake.” However, this conclusion is not supported by the data in their study because of a slight misinterpretation of the data and limitations of the study, as explained subsequently.
