ESOC 2022 | Tailored approaches to stroke management in women

Research has demonstrated that sex and gender play an important role in stroke epidemiology, presentation, medical care, and outcomes. Strokes in women are typically more severe, and disability and quality of life after stroke are consistently poorer in women than in men. The association between major risk factors and stroke risk is also known to differ by gender. Diana Aguiar de Sousa, MD, PhD, Lisbon Central University Hospital Center, University of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal, discusses the importance of a tailored approach to risk assessment and diagnosis of stroke in women. This interview took place at the ESOC 2022 congress in Lyon, France.
