A stroke, previously known medically as a cerebrovascular accident (CVA), is the rapidly developing loss of brain function(s) due to disturbance in the blood supply to the brain. This can be due to ...
A stroke is a cerebrovascular accident that results in inadequate blood flow to part of the brain, starving it of oxygen and causing immediate and irreversible changes to the neurones. If affects 15...
Vascular Dementia accounts for 25% of all dementias (the second most commen cause after Alzheimers. It is the cumulative effects of many small strokes - patients often have evidence of vascular path...
(American College of Emergency Physicians) Abdominal pain, fever and unexplained bleeding - which are commonly believed to indicate infection with the Ebola virus -- are not significantly predictive o...
This narrative review summarizes stroke risk prediction tools and strategies to prevent stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation.
For the first time, scientists have developed a new risk score that can predict the 10-year risk of developing heart disease or having a stroke in persons aged 40 years or older in any world country.
Researchers have developed a new risk score which they claim can predict the 10-year risk of developing heart disease or having a stroke in patients aged 40 years or older in any country.
The third International Stroke Trial (IST-3) is the largest (n=3035) randomised controlled trial of intravenous alteplase for acute ischaemic stroke to date.1 Participants in IST-3 were older than in ...
Men and women with a CHA2DS2-VASc score of 0 and 1, respectively, have a truly low risk for stroke, but just one additional risk factor heightens this risk significantly, according to a Danish stu...

Limited data exists regarding biomarker use to predict left ventricular (LV) reverse remodeling (R2). Our aim was to examine the value of soluble ST2 (ST2), N-terminal-pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (...
Cardiovascular (CV) disease is the leading cause of mortality in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), but CV risk prediction scores derived in the general population do not accurately predict CV risk in RA pati...
The risk of a subsequent stroke following a minor stroke is high. However, there are no effective rating scales to predict recurrent stroke following a minor one. Therefore, we assessed the risk facto...
