Accumulating evidence suggests that high blood pressure (BP) increases the risk of cerebral oedema and haemorrhagic transformation of the ischaemic stroke (IS), and that low BP in acute ischaemic stroke (AIS) is associated with a poor prognosis. The best possible management of hypertension after AIS is still uncertain.

There are a paucity of data on the association of duration of hypertension and blood pressure (BP) level with risk of ischaemic stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Our objective was to i...
The carotid artery plays a major role in stroke aetiology and is a good indicator of atherosclerosis. However, the clinical significance of internal carotid artery (ICA) anatomy remains unclear in pat...
Carotid stenosis is a common cause of ischaemic stroke and transient ischaemic attack (TIA). Despite rising recognition and centralization of stroke services there has been a decline in interventions ...
Accurate assessment of the burden of stroke, a major cause of disability and death, is crucial. We aimed to estimate rates of validated ischaemic stroke hospitalizations in the USA during 1998-2011.
Previous studies have demonstrated associations between human leucocyte antigen (HLA) and some types of ischaemic stroke. In the present study, we genotyped HLA-A,-B and -DRB1 alleles in 140 Iranian p...
A clinical trial comparing treatment with Imatinib to placebo when administered within 8 hours of stroke onset for 6 days, in addition to conventional stroke treatment after acute ischaemi...
This is a randomized, rt-PA controlled, open-label phase 3 clinical study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of human recombinant urokinase(rhPro-UK) versus rt-PA thrombectomy for patient...
This is a pilot randomised control trial to assess the safety, compliance, and acceptability of delivering a 6-week programme of remote ischaemic conditioning (RIC) to stroke patients suff...
Stroke has an enormous impact on both individual and society. Novel treatments are required to relieve this burden and remote ischaemic conditioning (RIC) is one such approach. RIC refers ...
Study to investigate if the study drug ticagrelor and ASA is more effective than Placebo (inactive tablet) and ASA in preventing new stroke events.
Methods to determine in patients the nature of a disease or disorder at its early stage of progression. Generally, early diagnosis improves PROGNOSIS and TREATMENT OUTCOME.
The active alterations of vascular wall structures, often leading to elevated VASCULAR RESISTANCE. It is associated with AGING; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; DIABETES MELLITUS; HYPERTENSION; PREGNANCY; PULMONARY HYPERTENSION; and STROKE, but is also a normal part of EMBRYOGENESIS.
A strain of Rattus norvegicus with elevated blood pressure used as a model for studying hypertension and stroke.
A syndrome associated with damage to the spinal cord above the mid thoracic level (see SPINAL CORD INJURIES) characterized by a marked increase in the sympathetic response to minor stimuli such as bladder or rectal distention. Manifestations include HYPERTENSION; TACHYCARDIA (or reflex bradycardia); FEVER; FLUSHING; and HYPERHIDROSIS. Extreme hypertension may be associated with a STROKE.
