FindingsIn this randomized clinical trial, risk of recurrent stroke at 1 year was 2.5%, and there was no difference in recurrence rates or rates of angiographic recanalization with antiplatelets or anticoagulants. MeaningThe risk of recurrent stroke after carotid and vertebral dissection is low; there was no evidence that antiplatelets or anticoagulants were more effective at reducing this risk. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA Neurology American Medical Association
