Abstract

guidelines have changed in relation to the indication of antiplatelet therapy for the primary and secondary prevention of stroke. Of interest is how the proportion of patients who had or had not taken antiplatelet agents prior to an incident stroke has changed over time, whether the type of antiplatelet agents used has altered and whether prior antiplatelet use is associated with a particular ischaemic stroke subtype.
