Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Stroke is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity globally. Changing lifestyle and environments as well as emerging novel diseases may contribute to stroke risk in addition to well established risk factors. In addition, age is a risk factor for stroke and with the increasing ageing populations, the incidence and prevalence of stroke is likely to increase but rate of such an increase may vary depending on the world region. It is also increasingly acknowledged that there may be gender/sex differences in risk factors which may also have different impact depending on their age. Prognosis of acute and long term phase of stroke is an important issue in making clinical decisions. In this special issue, we are interested in broad range of topics related to healthcare of stroke with a focus on risk factors and prognosis from global perspective.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Prof. Dr. Phyo Kyaw Myint
Guest Editor
