COR 6.7.22: Pediatric Ischemic Stroke

June 7, 2022

Although there is still limited evidence guiding the optimal management of pediatric stroke, there have been significant advances in recent years. This session will have two main parts: a) arterial ischemic stroke in neonates, and b) arterial ischemic stroke in children and adolescents. In both cases, we will review clinical features, etiology, management, and prognosis. When discussing neonatal stroke, we will briefly talk about cerebral palsy and its management. We will also discuss I-Acquire, a NIH-funded, multi-site clinical trial comparing two different protocols of intensive pediatric rehabilitation therapy after neonatal stroke. Lastly, we will review the hyperacute management of stroke in children and adolescents. Relevant topics include the differential diaanosis of stroke and stroke mimics, and the use of thrombolvsis and thrombectomy in these aqe qroups. 

Target Audience

Physicians, Psychologists, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners and Nurses specializing in Primary Care and Pediatrics.
