Yesterday was day two of this year's UK Stroke Assembly South event in Stansted, Essex, and researchers shared important insights into key areas of stroke research.
On Tuesday 13 June, the UK Stroke Forum (UKSF) hosted the sixth Northern Ireland Stroke Conference in the vibrant city of Belfast.
The aim of this programme is to develop and test a new care pathway for paramedics to recognise the patients who are likely to have a large artery blockage, so that this group can be taken directly to the thrombectomy hospital.
This research on Intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) will use zebrafish models so that we can gain a better understanding of how cells of the brain respond to the bleeding.
This project aims to demonstrate that failure of drainage of fluid from the grey and white matter of the brain is a mechanism underlying Small Vessel Disease, a condition that affects the small blood vessels in the brain which can cause stroke and dementia.
The European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESOC) 2017 took place this week from 16-18 May in Prague, Czech Republic. The third day of ESOC saw some exciting late breaking clinical trials.

The first day of the European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESOC) 2017 in Prague included some truly inspiring scientific sessions. These included reporting from the DAWN study which suggests that more patients could be able to receive mechanical thrombectomy after stroke.
