Published in the medical journal, The Lancet, a new study suggests that, when combined, ten potentially modifiable risk factors account for 90% of strokes worldwide. The study was co-funded by the Stroke Association.
Reducing blood pressure to prevent bleeding complications and improve outcome following clot-busting treatment for ischaemic stroke
We have held a number of workshops that have helped us to shape our priorities in a number of research areas.
Published in Stroke, a new study sheds light on a tool doctors might use to help them predict the recovery of stroke patients in the future.
Although stroke survivors have reported fatigue as a problem, previous estimates of the numbers of people affected have varied greatly – from one-quarter to almost three-quarters of stroke survivors.
Research in the American Academy of Neurology Journal suggests that strokes are becoming more common at a younger age, with about one in five victims now below the age of 55. Despite this, there is an overall decline in the incidence of stroke.
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.
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.
