Abstract

Secondary prevention of stroke is an essential aspect in the management of stroke survivors. Risk factors need to be modified. Evaluation of the type of initial stroke helps in deciding further management. Antiplatelet agents like aspirin, ticlopidine, ciopidogrel and the combination of aspirin and slow-release dipyridamole form an important part of therapy. Oral anticoaguiation with warfarin is required for patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. Vascular interventions are beneficial in specific cases.
