  • Stroke

Study Name:

International Paediatric Stroke Study Protocol: 'Towards the Establishment of Standards of Practice and the Initiation of Multicenter, Multi-National Clinical Trials for Neonates and Children with Stroke'

Summary:

Data registries can be used to help researchers better identify patterns related to a particular disease or condition. This data registry research activity will enable investigators to review and study the medical records of many patients in order to better understand the causes, risks and treatment of stroke in children. The registry will also be used to develop and conduct potential research studies.

Key Inclusion Criteria:

Patient must meet criteria for each stroke type:

  • Arterial Ischemic Stroke (AIS)

  • Cerebrovascular condition other than CSVT/AIS
    • Infants and children whose stroke is presumed to have occurred in the prenatal or perinatal period
    • Arteritis, vasculitis, vasculopathy, moya-moya with no clinical events or transient ischemic attack only
