This study is investigating how to make thoracic endovascular aortic stenting (TEVAR), treatment for thoracic aortic disease (TAD), safer by using extra protection devices.
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.
Your brain is amazing! It has the ability to re-wire itself, allowing you to improve skills such as walking, talking and using your affected arm. This process is known as neuroplasticity. Plasticity means your brain's ability to change. It begins after a stroke, and it can continue for years,
Amazing Brains: Research to Recovery. Previously known as our Keynote Lecture, our event took place on Wednesday, 15 May 2019, at the Science Museum in central London.
A stroke in the brain stem can cause the very rare condition of locked-in syndrome, where the person is conscious but unable to move apart from their eyes.
'Amazing Brains: The Remote Revolution' will celebrate progress and innovation in the latest stroke research. This year, the event will take place virtually on 27 May 2021, from 7.30-9pm.
The pandemic has hit stroke research hard. We need your help to save it.
Thousands of lives a year could be changed thanks to a pilot research study by Imperial College which involves injecting a patient's stem cells into their brain.
Funded by the Wellcome Trust, researchers at Newcastle University have shown that, in monkeys, it is possible to restore hand and arm movement lost through brain damage.
The aim of this research programme is to develop a human brain bank to support biomedical research into the pathophysiology of human SVD that may be used nationally and internationally.
