First results from the AVERT, early rehabilitation trial were unveiled at the European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESO) today.
Cerebral small vessel disease (SVD) is usually associated with high blood pressure, and causes 20% of all strokes. It is the main cause of cognitive changes and dementia associated with stroke. Behavioural symptoms such as apathy are also common in patients with SVD.
Most stroke and transient ischaemic attack (TIA) survivors are asked to take medicines, which some can find difficult. However, taking the medicines prescribed after a stroke, or TIA, and following lifestyle advice can reduce the chance of another stroke by 80%.
