Transcranial Doppler screening for stroke risk in children with sickle cell disease: a systematic review.

Abstract:

Background: Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) is one of the most common causes of stroke in children worldwide. Based on the results of the Stroke Prevention Trial in Sickle Cell Anaemia (STOP), annual Transcranial Doppler Ultrasound (TCD) screening for affected children is standard practice. However, the need for TCD surveillance programmes could override the accuracy of the screening, affecting the correct stratification of stroke risk and subsequent clinical management of the target population.
