SAN DIEGO — Traumatic head and neck injury tripled stroke risk for young adults compared with other types of trauma injuries, a large cohort study showed.
It makes sense that a head trauma would put even young people at a higher risk for stroke but, studies like this one are just now starting to quantify this increased risk. Oftentimes, we think of strokes only happening to older people but, blows to the head can triple the threat even in younger patients.
