After a mean of 6 years, the frequencies of later vascular events (recurrent ischemic stroke or myocardial infarction) in 232 young ischemic stroke patients (younger than 50 years) with none to five traditional risk factors were 2.1%, 6%, 19%, 26%, 30%, and 67% (p < 0.001). Long-term secondary preventive medication may not be indicated in young ischemic stroke patients with no risk factor.
