Around 15% of strokes are haemorrhagic (due to bleeding in or around the brain). This guide explains the two different types of stroke caused by a bleed, intracerebral and subarachnoid haemorrhage, and how they are diagnosed and treated.
A short, easy-to-read guide for stroke survivors, produced by the Stroke Association. Packed with essential information to help people understand their stroke.
A haemorrhagic stroke is a stroke that is caused by bleeding in or around the brain. Although they are less common than strokes that are caused by a blockage, they can be much more serious.
This complete guide explains how a stroke can affect the way your brain understands, organises and stores information. It also talks about the kinds of problems this can cause and what you can do about them. It’s aimed at people who have had a stroke and their family and friends.
Spatial neglect is caused when damage to the brain after stroke means that it no longer received information about one side of the body and/or world. Stroke survivors with spatial neglect might not be aware of anything happening on one side of their body. This research will investigate a computer based version of a new treatment for spatial neglect after stroke.
Around 85% of strokes are due to a blocked blood vessel in the brain, known as an ischaemic stroke. This guide explains what an ischaemic stroke is, what can cause you to have one, and how it is usually diagnosed and treated.
This research will test a new questionnaire which has been designed to measure the impact that stroke-related vision problems have on a stroke survivor’s quality of life.
We strive to develop and extend partnerships in order to improve the quality of life after stroke and enhance stroke prevention.
