Nontraditional Factors, Particularly Migraine, Play a Key Role in Stroke Development in Young Adults

26 Mar 2024 • Nontraditional risk factors, such as migraine and thrombophilia, held equal importance alongside traditional ones in stroke development for both genders.

  • Among 18- to 34-year-olds, more strokes were associated with nontraditional risk factors (31% in men, 43% in women) than traditional risk factors (about 25% in men, 33% in women).
  • Migraine emerged as the most significant nontraditional stroke risk factor in young adults.
  • However, the influence of nontraditional factors waned with age, while traditional factors like hypertension gained prominence, especially in the 45-55 age group.

These findings underscore the need for a comprehensive approach to stroke prevention that considers both traditional and nontraditional risk factors, particularly in younger populations.
