The Stroke Association has funded research to help understand what happens in the brain during a stroke, identify who is most at risk of stroke and how we can reduce their risk.
On February 11, at the International Stroke Conference (ISC 2015 in Nashville, USA) the latest findings were released from four, large studies investigating the effect of treating patients with mechanical clot retrieval.
The 13th UK Stroke Forum Conference took place at The International Centre, Telford, from 4 – 6 December 2018 and brought together over 110 expert speakers and researchers, all committed to improving stroke care.
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.
Presented at the International Stroke Conference 2016, the final results from the PISTE trial (Pragmatic Ischaemic Stroke Thrombectomy Evaluation) add new evidence for the effectiveness of mechanical clot retri
MR CLEAN is a Dutch trial that investigated treatment of a severe form of ischaemic stroke (blockage type stroke) with thrombolysis alone (dissolving a clot with clot-busting drugs), versus treatment with both thrombolysis.
Two new research studies were published today, supporting the use of thrombectomy (mechanical retrieval of clots in the brain) for the treatment of large ischaemic strokes.
Two more studies support (thrombectomy) mechanical clot retrieval for stroke.
