Atherosclerotic disease-related stroke: Predicting recurrence using plaque morphology

Due to a stroke, the brain tissue no longer receives oxygen.

Stroke caused by a blood clot is a major cause of death and disability worldwide. Intracranial atherosclerotic disease (ICAD) is a subtype of stroke whereby a build-up of material causes cerebral arteries to narrow and eventually causes onset of a stroke. ICAD-related strokes have the highest rates of stroke recurrence and death, leading to an urgent need for further research. […]

No safe level of smoking exists for heart disease and stroke

If you think smoking only one or two cigarettes a day is almost harmless, think again. Professor Allan Hackshaw at the Cancer Institute, University College London and colleagues examined the risk of stroke and heart disease associated with light smoking (one to five cigarettes per day). Their large-scale systematic review provides a major body of evidence highlighting the importance of […]

Time for a new approach to severe traumatic brain injury and stroke: Developments in automated, real-time monitoring of brain stem function

Dr James Stone Research Outreach

Traumatic brain injury and stroke can lead to a potentially fatal condition known as transtentorial herniation (TTH). Monitoring sedated patients for indications that TTH is developing presents many complications. Dr James Stone from New York University has developed a modified version of a test for brain activity in response to sound that shows promise in detecting early indications of TTH. […]
