Abstract

The risk of stroke is the highest within the first month after AMI. Stroke is a marker of unfavorable outcome in this population. Independent risk factors for stroke after invasive treatment of AMI are different from those commonly perceived as stroke predictors. A risk scale based on sex, stroke history, and renal impairment is useful in risk stratification.
