Abstract

Stroke in children carries lasting morbidity. Once recognized, it is important to evaluate and treat children with acute stroke efficiently and accurately. All children should receive neuroprotective measures. It is reasonable to consider treatment with advanced thrombolytic and endovascular agents. Delivery of such care requires purposeful institutional planning and organization in pediatric acute care centers. Primary stroke centers established for adults provide an example of the multidisciplinary approach that can be applied to the evaluation and treatment of children who present with acute stroke. The organizational infrastructure of these centers can be employed and adapted for treatment of children with acute stroke. It is likely that care for children with acute stroke can best be delivered by regional pediatric primary stroke centers dedicated to the care of children with pediatric stroke.
