Background and Purpose— Estimates of risk of stroke recurrence are widely variable and focused on the short- term. A systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted to estimate the pooled cumulative risk of stroke recurrence. Methods— Studies reporting cumulative risk of recurrence after first-ever stroke were identified using electronic databases and by manually searching relevant journals and conference abstracts. Overall cumulative risks of stroke recurrence at 30 days and 1, 5, and 10…

Cumulative risk of stroke recurrence over the last 10 years: a systematic review and meta-analysis

TLDR
The risk of stroke recurrence varies greatly from 3 months to over 10 years and increases significantly over time in both young and old subgroup and the heterogeneity may be explained by follow-up time, regions, age, methodology differences, and stroke types.

Risk and Cumulative Risk of Acute Ischemic Stroke Recurrence in China: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

TLDR
The recurrence rate of acute isChemic stroke in China is high and it is recommended that all levels of medical and health departments strengthen the prevention and treatment of ischemic stroke recurrence to reduce the recurrence of ischymic stroke and improve the prognosis of patients.

Diabetes As an Independent Risk Factor for Stroke Recurrence in Ischemic Stroke Patients: An Updated Meta-Analysis

TLDR
It is found that the risk of recurrent IS among patients of IS with diabetes was higher than that in those without diabetes, and diabetes is an independent risk factor for stroke recurrence among patients with IS.

Risk and Secondary Prevention of Stroke Recurrence A Population-Base Cohort Study

TLDR
The majority of cardioembolic or hemorrhagic strokes that have a recurrence are stroke of the same type indicating that the implementation of effective preventive strategies is still suboptimal in these stroke subtypes.

Long-Term Risk and Predictors of Recurrent Stroke Beyond the Acute Phase

TLDR
Despite declining recurrence rates in this relatively young stroke population, almost one third of stroke survivors in Northern Sweden are either dead or have experienced a second stroke in 5 years.

Risk and Secondary Prevention of Stroke Recurrence

TLDR
The rate of recurrence reduced until mid-2000s but has not changed over the last decade, indicating that the implementation of effective preventive strategies is still suboptimal in these stroke subtypes.

Risks of Stroke Recurrence and Mortality After First and Recurrent Strokes in Denmark

TLDR
The risk of stroke recurrence was substantial following both subtypes, but risks differed markedly among patient subgroups, and the risk of mortality was higher after a recurrent than first-time stroke.

Five-Year Recurrence Rate and the Predictors Following Stroke in the Mashhad Stroke Incidence Study: A Population-Based Cohort Study of Stroke in the Middle East

TLDR
Advanced age and the severity of the index stroke significantly increased the risk of recurrence, and this is an important finding for health policy makers and for designing preventive strategies in people surviving their stroke.

Poststroke depression and risk of recurrent stroke

TLDR
A meta-analysis of prospective studies suggests that poststroke depression may be an independent predictor of stroke recurrence among ischemic stroke patients.

Twenty-Year Time Trends in Long-Term Case-Fatality and Recurrence Rates After Ischemic Stroke Stratified by Etiology

TLDR
Long-term survival and recurrence varied substantially by first stroke cause, and Cox regression revealed improvements in case-fatality rates over time with differences in stroke causes.

Risk and Cumulative Risk of Stroke Recurrence

TLDR
This study demonstrates a temporal reduction in 5-year risk of stroke recurrence from 32% to 16.2% across the studies, and methodological differences are likely to play an important role and consensus on definitions would improve future comparability of estimates and characterization of groups of stroke survivors at increased risk of recurrence.

Frequency and predictors for the risk of stroke recurrence up to 10 years after stroke: the South London Stroke Register

TLDR
Risk factors prior to initial stroke have a significant role in predicting stroke recurrence up to 10 years, and different predictors for stroke Recurrence were identified throughout the follow-up period.

Long-term risk of recurrent stroke after a first-ever stroke. The Oxfordshire Community Stroke Project.

TLDR
The absolute and relative risks of recurrent stroke are highest early after the first stroke but remain elevated for several years thereafter, and efforts at secondary prevention should be initiated as soon as possible and continued forSeveral years to gain greatest benefit.

Trends in Five-Year Survival and Risk of Recurrent Stroke after First-Ever Stroke in the Perth Community Stroke Study

TLDR
Although no statistically significant improvement occurred in 5-year survival after first-ever stroke in Perth between 1989–90 and 1995–96, there was a statistically nonsignificant trend towards a smaller cumulative risk of recurrent stroke over 5 years after a first- ever stroke.

Long-term prognosis after a minor stroke: 10-year mortality and major stroke recurrence rates in a hospital-based cohort.

TLDR
In minor ischemic strokes, age, minor disability, MI, nonvalvular atrial fibrillation, and hypercholesterolemia increase the risk of death; recurrent minor strokes, nonlacunar stroke, MI and hypertension increase therisk of major stroke.

Predictors of the one-year stroke recurrence in the Northern Manhattan Stroke Study

TLDR
The data suggest a different pattern of risk factors for stroke recurrence than that for initial stroke, and patients who have acready suffered first stroke should also be considered a target population for education, improvement of compliance with medical therapies, and modification of hazardous behaviours.

Recurrent stroke and cardiac risks after first ischemic stroke

TLDR
Cardiac mortality is nearly twice as high as mortality owing to recurrent stroke, but long-term risk of all stroke, fatal or nonfatal, is approximately twice therisk of all cardiac events.

Epidemiology of Ischemic Stroke Subtypes According to TOAST Criteria: Incidence, Recurrence, and Long-Term Survival in Ischemic Stroke Subtypes: A Population-Based Study

TLDR
Empirical observational studies that possess wide access to appropriate diagnostic technologies and apply standardized etiologic classifications provide a much better understanding of underlying risk factors for initial stroke, recurrence, and mortality.

Ten year recurrence after first ever stroke in a Japanese community: the Hisayama study

TLDR
Japanese people have higher recurrence rates of stroke than other populations, but recurrence after lacunar infarction or brain haemorrhage showed divergent patterns.
