Trial of a Secondary Stroke Prevention Program

2014-08-27 03:15:49 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether an outpatient program can reduce the risk of recurrent stroke.

Description

Stroke is a major cause of death and disability. A history of stroke is the strongest predictor of a future stroke. Control of risk factors lowers the risk of future stroke, yet most persons with stroke do not have their risk factors controlled.

In this randomized-controlled trial, we will test whether an outpatient stroke prevention program consisting of group clinics, patient self-management, and telephone care coordination can lower the risk of recurrent stroke by improving patient knowledge, medication adherence, and lifestyle habits. If successful, this program may be adapted to other settings.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.

A morpholine and thiophene derivative that functions as a FACTOR XA INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment and prevention of DEEP-VEIN THROMBOSIS and PULMONARY EMBOLISM. It is also used for the prevention of STROKE and systemic embolization in patients with non-valvular ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and for the prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients after an ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME.

Stroke caused by lacunar infarction or other small vessel diseases of the brain. It features hemiparesis (see PARESIS), hemisensory, or hemisensory motor loss.

A group of pathological conditions characterized by sudden, non-convulsive loss of neurological function due to BRAIN ISCHEMIA or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Stroke is classified by the type of tissue NECROSIS, such as the anatomic location, vasculature involved, etiology, age of the affected individual, and hemorrhagic vs. non-hemorrhagic nature. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp777-810)

A condition caused by the failure of body to dissipate heat in an excessively hot environment or during PHYSICAL EXERTION in a hot environment. Contrast to HEAT EXHAUSTION, the body temperature in heat stroke patient is dangerously high with red, hot skin accompanied by DELUSIONS; CONVULSIONS; or COMA. It can be a life-threatening emergency and is most common in infants and the elderly.
