  • interventions
  • BACKGROUND: Adherence to evidence-based interventions for hospitalized patients who have experienced a stroke is suboptimal. (rti.org)
  • 14,469 patients with stroke and 833 patients with TIA were identified.Interventions: None.Main study variables: Demographics, admission and payer source, residential history, quality measures, comorbidities, and antiplatelet and anticoagulant therapies received.Results: Approximately 48% of stroke patients and 53% of TIA patients received any antiplatelet or anticoagulant medication.

  • hemorrhagic
  • the rate of hemorrhagic stroke was 0.3% in each group. (nih.gov)
  • Aneurysms in the brain may develop, which can lead to a stroke and bleeding inside the brain (hemorrhagic stroke) if an aneurysm ruptures. (wellspan.org)
  • The primary endpoint of phase I is the cumulative incidence of symptomatic hemorrhagic transformation, defined as a parenchymal hematoma on the day 7 and day 30 MRI scans (GRE sequence), associated with clinical worsening (≥4 point increase in National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) score). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • multicenter
  • In this multicenter, double-blind trial, we randomly assigned 3876 patients who had had a recent ischemic stroke or TIA to receive either pioglitazone (target dose, 45 mg daily) or placebo. (nih.gov)
  • occur
  • A meta-analysis also shows that the benefits of statins in reducing the rates of stroke and cardio-vascular events is independent of cholesterol levels and occur with other statins. (ahajournals.org)
  • 2 - 4 Bias may also occur in longitudinal studies as a result of selective loss to follow-up, 5 , 6 and such factors may result in underestimation of the true dementia risk after stroke. (ahajournals.org)
  • primary
  • 2 Clinical prediction scores such as the California Index 3 and ABCD and ABCD 2 scores 4 have been developed with the aim of improving identification of TIA subgroups at higher and lower early stroke risk, thus aiding triage decisions in primary and secondary care. (ahajournals.org)
  • carotid
  • The relations between individual ABCD 2 items, carotid stenosis, atrial fibrillation, and early stroke were examined. (ahajournals.org)
  • Treatment
  • Acute stroke - Treatment of hypertension may be an immediate concern in patients with an acute ischemic stroke and those with a subarachnoid or intracerebral hemorrhage. (uptodate.com)
  • See 'Initial assessment and management of acute stroke', section on 'Blood pressure management' and 'Spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage: Treatment and prognosis', section on 'Blood pressure' and 'Treatment of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage', section on 'Intracranial pressure' . (uptodate.com)
  • Treatment now could prevent a severe and disabling stroke in your near future - and even save your life. (researchmedicalcenter.com)
  • Proper treatment of high blood pressure can reduce the chance of having a TIA or stroke. (wellspan.org)
  • interest in stroke
  • Written by a leading team of clinicians and researchers in the field, this book will be essential to neurologists, geriatricians, stroke physicians, allied health workers and all others with an interest in stroke. (frohberg.de)
  • Mary Joan Macleod is a Senior Lecturer in Clinical Pharmacology with a clinical interest in stroke medicine. (bmj.com)
  • incidence rates
  • Thrombotic stroke had the highest prevalence and incidence rates (4.2 per 1,000 and 1.7 per 1,000, respectively), whereas subarachnoid hemorrhage had the lowest prevalence and incidence rates (0.03 per 1,000 and 0.02 per 1,000). (dovepress.com)
