Although hyperlipidemia is not always the risk factor of stroke, inhibition of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A(HMG-CoA) reductase can decrease the incidence of stroke in the patient with ischemic heart disease. The neuroprotective mechanism beyond cholesterol lowering should be expected to attenuate inflammation and atherosclerosis. The present study hypothesizes if pravastatin prevents recurrent stroke in the ischemic stroke patients with safety.

Carotid ultrasound can reveal the intima-media complex thickness(IMT), that has been reported to be a marker of atherosclerosis as well as a risk of cardiovascular events, and to be attenu...
Ischemic stroke accounts for the majority of stroke cases and constitutes a major cause of death and disability in industrial world. Inflammation has been reported to constitute a major co...
This study was designed to compare the rate and extent of absorption of pravastatin sodium from the following formulations under fed conditions: 1. Pravastatin Sodium 80 mg Tablets (Gen...
The purpose of this trial is to determine if intravenous administration of the metal ion trapping agent DP-b99 within 1-9 hours of acute ischemic stroke onset, and then for 3 additional da...
The main purpose of this study is to build the study cohort of young ischemic stroke population in China, and to compare the prognosis of patients with different ischemic stroke subtypes.
Predictors of recurrent ischemic stroke are less well known in patients with a recent ischemic stroke than in patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA). We identified clinical and radiological fac...
Stroke is one of the leading causes of death worldwide, and ischemic stroke accounts for about 80 percent of all cases. Ischemic stroke is usually caused by a blockage in an artery to the brain. Howev...
Ischemic stroke is a devastating brain injury, resulting in high mortality and significant loss-of-function. Understanding the pathophysiology of ischemic stroke risk, mortality and functional loss is...
Ischemic stroke is characterized by high morbidity, mortality and disability rate worldwide. Because of its complexity in pathogenesis and lack of effective therapeutic strategies and drugs, great bre...
Serum cystatin C (CysC) is associated with the risk of ischemic stroke and may predict cardiovascular events and death after ischemic stroke onset. However, the association between serum CysC and func...
The application of repeated, brief periods of vascular occlusion at the onset of REPERFUSION to reduce REPERFUSION INJURY that follows a prolonged ischemic event. The techniques are similar to ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING but the time of application is after the ischemic event instead of before.
A drug combination of aspirin and dipyridamole that functions as a PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR, used to prevent THROMBOSIS and STROKE in TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK patients.
Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy.

Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.
Restoration of blood supply to tissue which is ischemic due to decrease in normal blood supply. The decrease may result from any source including atherosclerotic obstruction, narrowing of the artery, or surgical clamping. It is primarily a procedure for treating infarction or other ischemia, by enabling viable ischemic tissue to recover, thus limiting further necrosis. However, it is thought that reperfusion can itself further damage the ischemic tissue, causing REPERFUSION INJURY.
