The American Heart Association recently reported that stroke is currently the 5th most common cause of death among Americans as one in every 19 deaths is from stroke [1]. While some studies have shown a decline in the incidence and rate of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) hospitalizations among adults in the United States [2], its impact over the healthcare system in the United States is still a major burden. Several racial/ethnic and gender disparities have also been reported among AIS patients over the years. A rise in the incidence among younger individuals, which could be linked with the use of multiple drugs predisposing to stroke such as cocaine [3, 4], has also raised serious concerns about the condition [2]. Thus, we conducted a retrospective study on the incidence and mortality of AIS hospitalizations and understand its economic impact in the United States.
