Infection and Stroke in Children
Heather Fullerton, MD, MAS, Presenter

Webinar #25 Registration Homepage    


Dr. Fullerton will discuss risk factors for childhood arterial ischemic stroke, particularly as they relate to both major infections, like meningitis, and minor infections, like the common cold. She will also discuss childhood cerebral arteriopathies, how they affect risk of recurrent stroke in children, and what is known about the role of infection in the development of these arteriopathies. Results will be presented from the recently completed NIH-funded prospective study, the Vascular effects of Infection in Pediatric Stroke (VIPS) study. 

Educational Objectives:

  1. To understand how infection can act as a trigger for childhood
  2. To know what specific pathogens have been linked to stroke in
  3. To understand the relationship between infection,
    arteriopathies, and risk of recurrent stroke.   

New Stroke CME/CE Activities

Key sessions from the 2015 International Stroke Conference are now available on-demand at and offer CME/CE credit. Topics include:

Understanding and Applying the Endovascular Trials

The results of the four recently presented/published trials for acute ischemic stroke herald the dawn of a new era in the treatment of patients with large vessel occlusion amenable to endovascular intervention. Additional trials are underway or have been stopped earlier because of the positive results observed in the initial trials. Hopefully, the ongoing trials will largely amplify and build upon the results observed in the MR CLEAN, ESCAPE, EXTEND-IA and SWIFT PRIME trials. At this time, it is important for the medical community, health care planners and policy makers to have interpretation and guidance from experts about the trial results currently available for help in steering them as to how the trial results should be utilized in daily practice and for the local organization of acute stroke care. To accomplish this goal, Stroke invited a panel of experts with a wide range of backgrounds to provide insights. . . .
