WSC 2022 | Neuropsychiatric consequences of stroke

Ana Catarina Fonseca, MD, PhD, University of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal, discusses the neuropsychiatric consequences of stroke. Numerous neuropsychiatric disorders are commonly seen after stroke, including depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, apathy, and post-traumatic stress disorder. These complications can have substantial negative effects on functional recovery and quality of life. Despite this, the is a great lack of data from controlled studies and thus, these complications may go unrecognized or be suboptimally managed. Further studies should attempt to develop protocols or guidelines for the diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of neuropsychiatric disorders after stroke. This interview took place at the World Stroke Congress 2022 in Singapore.
