Coagulopathies and Ischemic Stroke

S. M. Koleilat, Bruce M Coull

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In ischemic stroke coagulopathies are characterized by a condition in which blood is too quick to clot. Such coagulation abnormalities may be genetic or acquired. Coagulation abnormalities are identified as the cause of ischemic stroke in less than 1% of unselected series. Accordingly, in the vast majority of patients with ischemic stroke an extensive evaluation to identify a coagulopathy is not warranted. In few specific setting, testing for a coagulopathy may provide diagnostic evidence for an otherwise unexplained stroke.
