An ischaemic stroke happens when a blood clot, or other blockage, cuts off the blood supply to your brain. This is the most common type of 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.
A transient ischaemic attack (TIA) is the same as a stroke but the symptoms last a short amount of time. This guide explains how to spot the signs of a TIA, and how a TIA is diagnosed and treated.

Can a drug commonly used for gout improve recovery and prevention of further stroke for stroke survivors?
This study will compare tenecteplase, a newer clot-busting drug, with alteplase, which is currently the routine treatment used in hospitals.
This research is focused on assessing the relationship between the variability of the blood flow through the blood vessels supplying the brain, and the risk of stroke in patients who have already had a stroke or “mini-stroke” (TIA) in the past.
This fellowship aims to develop, tailor and target the delivery of a 6-week group intervention that offers educational, psychological and social support for people following TIA and minor stroke.
