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.
While developing the hematoma expansion prediction score, associations between hematoma expansion and blend sign, any intrahematoma hypodensity, and time from onset to noncontrast computed tomography <2.5 hours were found.
The investigators were unable to determine which type of congenital heart disease or which type of ventricular assist device, if used, played a role in mortality outcomes.
The findings from this trial are limited to only ischemic stroke patients with large-vessel occlusion who are deemed appropriate for thrombolysis.
