In a study published in the journal, The Lancet Neurology, scientists analysed data from more than 1,600 adults with cavernoma - a cluster of abnormal blood vessels in the brain - to generate estimates of risk. The findings could help both doctors and patients to make informed decisions about their treatment.
Intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is a type of stroke, which is caused by bleeding in the brain, ultimately leading to brain damage, disability and often death. We currently know very little about the biological changes that occur in the brain after intracerebral haemorrhage. This research on ICH will use zebrafish models so that we can gain a much better understanding of how cells of the brain respond to the bleeding and if there are ways that we can stop the damage caused.
Published online first in the journal Neurology, a new study suggests that people with AF who have an ICH due to their medication have similar outcomes whether they're on a NOAC or a vitamin K antagonist drug.
This study will show whether more intensive lowering of blood pressure (BP) in survivors of intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is feasible, safe and effective in reducing brain injury. If successful, the study will pave the way for the design a larger definitive trial.
People with stroke due to brain hemorrhage have swelling around the hemorrhage on their brain scan. This programme is about understanding the effect of blood on brain cells, with a focus on finding treatments.
This research will investigate 2000 drugs that are already known to be safe for use in humans to see if they could help reduce the amount of damage to the brain which an intracerebral haemorrhage (a type of stroke caused by a bleed in the brain) causes.
PRESTIGE-AF is a new multi-million Euro initiative funded by the European Commission has been set up to help prevent stroke in patients with existing conditions.
Led by the University of Nottingham, a new international study investigated whether patients with a spontaneous bleed in the brain (intracerebral haemorrhage) could benefit from this drug, if delivered as an emergency treatment. An intracerebral haemorrhage is a type of stroke.
