Recent years have witnessed tremendous strides in our understanding of risk factors and prevention of stroke. Research into stroke risk factors has increasingly addressed the heterogeneous subtypes of strokes, including not only hemorrhagic versus ischemic stroke but also the several etiologic subtypes of stroke. Thus, studies have confirmed that lipids are a risk factor for atherosclerotic stroke, whereas AF and related atrial cardiopathies are associated with cardioembolic strokes.
Genetic analyses have benefited in particular from the emphasis on specific categories of stroke. Mutations in particular genes have now been associated with, and replicated in, large vessel, cardioembolic, and small vessel stroke subtypes. Genetic studies have also suggested new avenues to pursue in teasing out stroke pathogenesis. These studies suggest that in the future, precision medicine will enable clinicians to better focus treatments in cerebrovascular disease.
Meanwhile, several large clinical trials have provided evidence of the benefits of several medical and behavioral treatments in reducing stroke risk. Blood pressure reduction, statin therapy, antiplatelets, anticoagulants, carotid revascularization, and dietary changes have all been proven to reduce stroke risk in various patient populations. Just as importantly, some treatments, such as stenting of stenosed intracranial vessels, have not yet been proven of benefit. Observational studies provide strong evidence for other behavioral approaches, including smoking cessation and regular physical activity.

Considerations of alternative approaches to prevention, in general, such as the mass approach using therapies like the polypill, using risk estimation in primary care and focusing on high-risk intervals of time after stroke triggers, also have the potential to dramatically change the future of stroke prevention.
