Ischemic Stroke articles

Diabetic stroke risk after AMI drops in 10 year period
At the ESC Congress researchers reveal that reperfusion therapy and secondary prevention drugs produced the decline and brought stroke risk after AMI closer to that of non-diabetics.

Use of clot busters for stroke increased from 2005 to 2009
The use of clot-busting drugs to treat acute ischemic stroke increased from 2005 through 2009 - but is still low, according to research reported in Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association.

High triglyceride levels linked to greater stroke risk
Increasing levels of non-fasting triglycerides are associated with an increased risk of ischemic stroke in men and women, revealed by researchers in Denmark.

Stroke rate declined in middle aged, elderly, increased in young
The number of acute ischemic stroke hospitalizations among middle-aged and older men and women fell between 1994 and 2007, but sharply increased among those under age 35 - including teens and children - according to research presented at the American Stroke Association's International Stroke Conference 2011.

Warfarin may lead to brain bleeding following stroke treatment
Patients already taking warfarin who develop an acute stroke appear more likely to experience a brain hemorrhage following treatment with an intravenous clot-dissolving medication, even if their blood clotting function appears normal, revealed by researchers.

Weekend strokes may receive more aggressive treatment
Stroke patients admitted to the hospital on the weekend appear more likely to receive the clot-dissolving medication tissue plasminogen activator than patients admitted during the week. However, stroke death rates appear similar among weekend and weekday admissions.

Exercise helps stroke patients recover faster
A person who has exercised regularly prior to the onset of a stroke appears to recover more quickly, say researchers from Mayo Clinic in Florida, USA, in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry.

Second stroke often follows within hours of first
About half of all people who have a major stroke following a warning stroke (a transient ischemic attack or mild stroke) have it within 24 hours of the first event, according to research published in the June 2, 2009, print issue of Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

Stroke treatment can benefit patients up to 4.5 hours
Once symptoms start, there's only a tiny window of time for stroke victims to get life-saving treatment. Now, research from the Stanford University School of Medicine has cracked that window open a bit wider.

Stroke linked to genetic changes
Scientists have identified a previously unknown connection between two genetic variants and an increased risk of stroke, providing strong evidence for the existence of specific genes that help explain the genetic component of stroke.

Ultrasound with tPA effective for stroke
An experimental therapy using tiny bubbles activated by transcranial Doppler (TCD) ultrasound combined with the clot busting drug tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) is more effective than tPA alone in treating patients suffering from ischemic stroke, according to new research presented at the American Stroke Association's International Stroke Conference in San Diego.

Ischemic stroke increases with higher nonfasting triglyceride level
Elevated nonfasting triglyceride levels, previously associated with an increased risk for heart attack, also appear to be associated with an increased risk for ischemic stroke.

Does ginkgo biloba affect memory?
Taking the supplement ginkgo biloba had no clear-cut benefit on the risk of developing memory problems, according to a study published in the February 27, 2008, online issue of Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.
