Predictors of headache at the chronic stage of ischemic stroke

Takeaway

  • Around half of stroke survivors experience headache at the chronic stage of ischemic stroke.

Why this matters

    Although headache following ischemic stroke in the acute stage has been well described, less is known about the nature of headache in the chronic stage after stroke. The findings may help define the diagnostic features of persistent poststroke headache in the chronic stage of stroke.
