A large case series has identified plausible risk factors for ischemic stroke or intracranial hemorrhage in patients on temporary LVAD support, shaping further studies to pinpoint key risks.
A large national database study has confirmed that the short-term benefits of swift administration of thrombolytic therapy continue out to at least one year.
An NIH grant will help Cleveland Clinic researchers determine whether the novel dual-action agent can safely lengthen the thrombolytic time window in ischemic stroke and protect against reperfusion injury.
Automated quantification of vascular calcification on CT angiography shows promise for classifying stroke causes and elucidating underlying mechanisms, two new studies show.

U.S. database analyses show that risk of readmission for stroke is impacted by race (but not age or sex) and that stroke risk factor prevalence is surging most markedly in rural America.
A new study shows that infarct growth in this setting is associated with both longer procedural times and the number of procedural passes attempted, particularly beyond three attempts.
Recent Medicare data demonstrate that increased use of IV thrombolysis and endovascular thrombectomy is reducing 30-day and one-year mortality. They also underscore the need for far broader use of these reperfusion therapies.
One of the first episodes of our “Neuro Pathways” podcast features interventional neurologist Shazam Hussain, MD, on the latest in mechanical thrombectomy and other developments in stroke care.
A population already at high risk of stroke has seen significant increases in the prevalence of almost all risk factors since 2000, a registry study shows. The findings are a clarion call for clinicians.
Whether a patient had an ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage or subarachnoid hemorrhage, their post-event health domains are likely to be affected to a similar degree, a recent study finds.
