Reviewed by Zalman S. Agus MD; Emeritus Professor, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and Dorothy Caputo, MA, BSN, RN, Nurse Planner

Action Points

  • In the Women's Health Study, a large randomized clinical trial, for women who were randomized to low-dose aspirin, there was no significant decrease in total stroke incidence.
  • The use of aspirin was also not associated with significantly better functional outcomes in terms of total stroke, ischemic stroke, or hemorrhagic stroke.
