Factors associated with stroke in Thai young adults: an integrative review

Author: VACHIRA POSAI, WANICH SUKSATAN
Abstract: Strokes, which are more prevalent in men, can be a large risk for young adults. For example, the number of strokes in Thai young adults (age 45 years or younger) has increased steadily. However, it has been not well established whether young stroke , such as adults aged younger than 45 years, have different risk factors. The current review aims to explore the factors associated with stroke in Thai young adults for improving health outcomes. We included articles published between 2010 and 2020 taken from Scopus, PubMed, Web of Science, CINAHL, and ThaiJO and conducted an integrative review according to PRISMA guidelines. The results indicated that eight studies were to be included in the review: five retrospective studies, two cross-sectional studies, and a hospital-based case control study. The evidence supports that Thai stroke incidence is higher in young men than in young women and that patients frequently have multiple comorbidities. This review also confirms that primary and secondary prevention, along with treatment, may prevent stroke in the young. However, there is a limited number of intervention studies that focus on stroke among young adult Thai patients. Overall, the current review suggests that healthcare providers, public sectors, and researchers should lead the development of more robust primary and secondary prevention strategies for young stroke adults.
