No significant readmission risk across subtypes for older adults hospitalized for stroke


A study published in Neurology found that in a cohort of 1,412 older adults with stroke, there was no significant difference in readmission risk for different stroke subtypes. The study followed up participants for all-cause readmission after their initial stroke and found that the risk of readmission was high for all subtypes in the short and long term. Thrombotic/lacunar stroke was associated with a lower readmission risk compared to cardioembolic stroke, while no significant differences were found between subtypes in readmission risk during later periods. The study highlights the need for strategies to reduce readmissions for stroke survivors of all subtypes.
