We believe in life after stroke. That’s why we actively campaign for better stroke care, working with politicians of all parties to ensure stroke remains high on the political agenda. It's why we fund research into finding new treatments, and also ways of reducing the risk of stroke across the UK. Find out what we're upto currently in Scotland.
The Stroke Association has completed 15,000 blood pressure checks with Royal Mail employees.
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.
People who have survived a previous stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA) are at particularly high risk of subsequent, ‘recurrent’ stroke with 30% having another stroke in the following five years. High blood pressure is the most important reversible risk factor for having a recurrent stroke.
Published in the journal, PLOS ONE, a new study sheds light on how feasible it is to conduct a large trial of intensive blood pressure lowering, and cholesterol lowering treatment after stroke, to see if these prevent patients developing memory and thinking problems (cognitve impairment). In some cases, cognitive impairment can progress and lead to dementia after stroke.
