Abstract

Approximately 12%-27% of cerebrovascular disease in women of childbearing age is associated with pregnancy. The reported incidence of stroke in pregnancy ranges from 0.01%-0.05%. While these events are uncommon, they are often clinically devastating. The Center for Disease Control's (CDC) review of death certificates in all 50 states and the District of Columbia found that neurologic or neurovascular problems are one of the leading causes of mortality in pregnancy.
