New clot-busting treatment option for ‘wake-up’ stroke patients
Presented today at the European Stroke Organisation Conference in Gothenburg, the results of the international WAKE-UP trial suggest that thousands of people who wake up with a stroke each year in the UK could now benefit from life-changing thrombolysis treatment.
Seizures and epilepsy after stroke
Some people can experience post-stroke seizures. A small number of people go on to develop epilepsy, which is a tendency to have repeated seizures. Find out about the different types of seizures and how epilepsy is diagnosed and treated.
Around a third of stroke survivors experience post-stroke depression, and 20% will suffer from emotionalism within six-months of their stroke. Our Emotional Support service can help. If you are involved in planning or providing health and social care, your role is crucial in helping stroke survivors and carers deal with the emotional impact of stroke, which can be just as devastating as the physical.
