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.
The Stroke Association held this workshop to set the priorities for haemorrhagic stroke research in the UK.
About 15 per cent of strokes are due to bleeding in or around the brain: haemorrhagic strokes. This leaflet explains the different types of stroke caused by bleeding and how they are diagnosed and treated.
Intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is a type of stroke, which is caused by bleeding in the brain, ultimately leading to brain damage, disability and often death. We currently know very little about the biological changes that occur in the brain after intracerebral haemorrhage.
This study will investigate whether more intensive lowering of blood pressure (BP) in survivors of intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is feasible, safe and effective in reducing brain injury.
Predicting people at risk of sub-arachnoid haemorrhage
This study will show whether more intensive lowering of blood pressure (BP) in survivors of intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is feasible, safe and effective in reducing brain injury. If successful, the study will pave the way for the design a larger definitive trial.
Published online first in the journal Neurology, a new study suggests that people with AF who have an ICH due to their medication have similar outcomes whether they're on a NOAC or a vitamin K antagonist drug.
We are now launching our second call for applications to our Priority Programme Awards in haemorrhagic stroke in 2017.
