Answer

Answer

Treatment of stroke may minimize neuronal damage and is aimed at preventing recurrences. In pregnancy, factors such as maternal risk versus expected benefit and the level of fetal risk must be taken into account. The stroke etiology also must be considered when determining the best treatment.
