Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases: Mild cognitive impairment and receipt of procedures for acute ischemic stroke in older adults

Older patients with pre-existing mild cognitive impairment (MCI) receive less evidence-based care after acute myocardial infarction, however, whether they receive less care after acute ischemic stroke (AIS) is unknown. We compared receipt of guideline-concordant procedures after AIS between older adults with pre-existing MCI and normal cognition.
