Praveen Gupta, Director, Neurology, Fortis Memorial research Institute, Gurgaon, aforementioned that there has been a rise of young patients within the previous couple of years.

“We get around a minimum of 3 new young patients almost each month. the amount of young stroke patients has nearly doubled as compared to last few years. Studies suggest that major risk factors like air pollution and smoking increase stroke incidences each in the short term and long term,” Gupta added.
