Cardiovascular Health
In Brief
The underwriting of cerebrovascular disease very often has as its basis an overall assessment of the proposed insured’s cardiovascular profile combined with characteristics of the stroke itself.
The intent of the article is to review many of the most common but complex challenges in the underwriting of stroke, including discriminating TIA from its many mimics, addressing the increasing incidence of stroke in younger individuals, and reviewing basic principles in the evaluation of carotid stenting and cerebral aneurysm.
