Published 2006 .
Written in English.

About the Book

Results. 209 children with AIS were studied. Median interval from symptom onset to AIS diagnosis was 22.7 hours, ED arrival was 1.7 hours, initial assessment was 16-minutes and initial neuroimaging was 8.8 hours. Initial neuroimaging diagnosed AIS in 47%. Parent's help seeking action, non-abrupt symptoms, altered consciousness, milder stroke, posterior infarction and lack of initial neuroimaging at a tertiary hospital were predictive of delayed diagnosis.Background. Prompt diagnosis of pediatric arterial ischemic stroke (AIS) within 6-hours enables stroke specific thrombolytic and neuroprotective strategies.Methods. Retrospective study of prospectively enrolled children with AIS, admitted to The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, from January 1992-December 2004. Data on clinical presentation, symptom onset, emergency department (ED) arrival, neuroimaging and stroke diagnosis were recorded. Putative predictors of delayed diagnosis were selected a priori for univariate and multivariate analysis.Conclusion. In children with AIS, significant diagnostic delays exist. Efforts to reduce these delays can accelerate and optimize the management of AIS in children.
