Course Summary

The diagnosis of a neurovascular accident is multifactorial. It involves recognition of associated risk factors as well as signs and symptoms, which does not always guarantee a correct diagnosis. Depending on the neurovascular event, some injuries become more apparent after the actual neurovascular event occurs. Some signs are acutely severe and immediate while others can be subtle, making neurological injury diagnosis difficult and possibly delayed. Treatment with anticoagulants or thrombolytic agents is discussed, including inclusion and exclusion criteria for administration. The complications of a neurovascular accident are reviewed.
