Abstract

Objective: Recurrent ischemic stroke (RIS) is a major threat CO patients with IS. The risk of RIS in patients with minor IS (MIS) is 10-13% in the first 3 months. Despite the advanced examination and treatment of the patients, RIS is still common. It is important to know which risk factors cause RIS in order to rake some precautions. The aim of this study is to determine the risky group by determining the demographic, clinical and radiological features associated with RIS in patients with MIS.
