Researchers have developed a simple test that might help determine how patients recover from strokes even three later, according to a study.
ABSTRACT Get With The Guidelines ® – Stroke is an in-hospital program for improving stroke care by promoting adherence to scientific guidelines. Of the patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA), 10-15% have a stroke within three months, and many patients do not receive the recommended interventions to prevent this outcome.
