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 initation could lead to fewer recurrent strokes.
A response to reports in the news about small, early studies that make it look like the coronavirus may be causing strokes.
Published online first in the journal Neurology, a new study investigates the effectiveness of tools used to predict recovery of patients after stroke.
The Stroke Association funded a feasibility study into improving the treatment of a condition called 'drop foot', which was recently published in the medical journal, Disability & Rehabilitation: Assistive Technology.
Can electrical stimulation of the leg alleviate bladder problems caused by stroke?
Testing the idea that fatigue occurring after stroke is due to changes in the brain regions controlling the muscles using non-invasive brain stimulation and brain imaging techniques in 142 stroke patients, half of who will be those who complain of fatigue.
Using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to enable activation of the damaged part of the brain to be more active in the recovery period after a stroke
Co-funded by the Stroke Association, a new review of the research into NIBS (non-invasive brain stimulation) for the recovery of leg movement and walking suggests that although it can bring about changes in leg function, the design of existing studies are very different, making it difficult to determine its effectiveness.
