|Abstract:||We sought to investigate potential racial disparities in early outcomes of young individuals with stroke in an international multicenter study. We evaluated consecutive patients with first-ever acute stroke aged 18-45 years from prospective databases involving 12 tertiary-care stroke centers in North America (n = 2), Europe (n = 6), and Asia (n = 4). Demographics, vascular risk factors, stroke subtypes, pre-stroke functional status, stroke severity, blood pressure parameters, and serum glucose at hospital admission were documented. The outcome events of interest were 30-day mortality and 30-day favorable functional outcome (FFO) defined as modified-Rankin Scale score of 0-1. A total of 1,134 young adults (mean age 37.4 ± 7.0 years; 58.8 % men; 48.6 % Whites, 23.9 % Blacks, and 27.5 % Asians; median baseline National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale score 6 points, interquartile range 2-13) were included in the analyses. The 30-day stroke mortality and FFO rates differed (p|
