Stroke Prevention Strategies May Help Prevent Dementia
Findings from a new study suggest that engaging in stroke prevention strategies may help reduce the risk of dementia.
Use of ticagrelor resulted in similar rates of major bleeding compared to clopidogrel in patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction treated with thrombolysis.
In patients with severe cerebral small vessel disease, a strategy of intensive blood pressure control did not significantly alter whole brain blood flow when compared to standard blood pressure control.
Patients presenting with ischemic stroke 6 to 16 hours after they were last known to be well had improved functional outcomes at 90 days if treated with thrombectomy and medical therapy compared to medical therapy alone.
