Younger stroke survivors are at risk of premature death, with 20% of young stroke survivors dying within two decades of their stroke, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Today, adults between the ages 20 and 55 experience 1 in 5 strokes, compared with 1 in 8 during the mid-1990s. "We had the impression that [younger stroke survivors] were doing quite well," said Dr. Frank-Erik de Leeuw, who led the study. "To me, it was a true surprise."
