Stroke & Vascular Disorders
Stroke associated with myocardial infarction
Acute myocardial infarction is associated with a low but significant risk of stroke. Ischemic strokes are the predominant type of stroke seen in non-ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction, and most ischemic strokes are cardioembolic. Intracerebral hemorrhage can occur after thrombolysis for acute myocardial infarction and markedly increases the risk of death and disability.
