This research project will design a healthy living programme for stroke survivors and their families and help people learn how to manage their own lifestyle risk factors.
The study aims to develop and test a self-monitoring system of high blood pressure, tailored to the needs of stroke and TIA survivors.
STARR (stroke, technology and risk reduction) is a new research program, which will help stroke survivors manage their risk factors for recurrent stroke: a stroke that happens after someone has their first stroke.
Published online (ahead of print in the journal Annals of Neurology), the results of a new study found that one year after arterial ischaemic stroke (AIS), the rate of death, recurrence of stroke, and neurological impairment was lower than reports in previous studies.
On 12 February 2015, at the International Stroke Conference (ISC 2015) in Nashville, USA, the findings of a Stroke Association-funded study were presented, called CADISS (Cervical Artery Dissection In Stroke Study).
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 study will collect robust data on blood pressure variability (BPV) in stroke patients, to understand how it is related to future stroke risk and recovery from stroke.
Universty of Oxford News Release:Immediate aspirin after mini-stroke substantially reduces risk of major stroke
The European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESOC) 2018 is currently on from 16-18 May in Gothenburg, Sweden. The first day of ESOC included some truly inspiring scientific sessions, including the WAKE-UP trial, RIGHT-2 trial and CROMIS-2 trials.
This study will investigate whether early initiation of direct anticoagulant drugs will be as safe as later initiation in stroke patients with an abnormal heart rhythm (atrial fibrillation). It will also investigate whether early initiation could lead to fewer recurrent strokes.
