Researchers from the University of Missouri School of Medicine and MU Health Care recently teamed up to review emergency department data from 54 health care facilities. The goal was to better understand the relationship between COVID-19 and stroke.
Although only 2% of patients diagnosed with COVID-19 suffered a stroke, researchers found that those with stroke had increased risk of requiring long-term care after hospital discharge. Researchers also discovered that these patients were older, more likely to be Black and had a higher frequency of cardiovascular risk factors. Adnan I. Qureshi, a professor of clinical neurology at the MU School of Medicine, said these findings are somewhat different from earlier studies that suggested patients with COVID-19 who developed stroke were younger and without preexisting cardiovascular risk factors.
