This project will investigate whether a new treatment can help stroke survivors with hemianopia (loss of sight to one side) to manage their vision problems.
This study will measure if visual scanning training interventions can help stroke survivors with visual field impairment.
This project will continue the development of tools to assess the brain scans of people with stroke, which could predict how patients will fare after a stroke.
The CROMIS-2 study investigated whether signs of small brain bleeds on routine brain scans can help us understand which ischaemic stroke patients with atrial fibrillation are at increased risk of a bleed in the brain when on anticoagulant ‘blood thinning’ drugs.
This project is part of a larger on-going study into Small Vessel Disease (SVD) after stroke. It will allow the researchers to invite some of the participants in this project back for more frequent brain scans and tests to help them to understand more about SVD after stroke.
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.
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.
No two strokes are the same. How well you recover and how long it takes is different for everyone, but making sure that you receive treatment as quickly as possible will give you the best chance of making a good recovery.
After a stroke, people often want to know how their recovery could progress and what life might look like in the future. Right now, there aren’t many tools available to help health professionals to predict recovery, so we’re funding research to change this.
