Prognosis - Seizure Post-Stroke
You see a 70 year old man in your outpatient clinic 3 months after he was discharged from your service with an ischemic stroke. He is in sinus rhythm, has mild residual left-sided weakness but is otherwise well. His only medication is ASA and he has no allergies. He recently saw an article on the BMJ website describing the risk of seizure after a stroke and is concerned that this will happen to him.
What clinical questions could you ask?
- Patient or Problem:
- 70 year old man
- Comparison Intervention:
- In a 70 year old man does a history of stroke increase his risk for seizure?
