Stroke is one of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide. Although important advances in therapeutic approaches have been made, treatment is still far from satisfactory. Thus, major efforts should be made on stroke prevention. We present evidence-based recommendations for primary stroke prevention. Changes to modifiable risk factors, the role of drugs and surgery are discussed. New markers may help identification of subjects at high risk.
