Study ties stroke-related brain blood vessel abnormality to gut bacteria
(NIH/National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke) In a nationwide study, NIH funded researchers found that the presence of abnormal bundles of brittle blood vessels in the brain or spinal cord, called cavernous angiomas (CA), are linked to the composition of a person's gut bacteria. Also known as cerebral cavernous malformations, these lesions which contain slow moving or stagnant blood, can often cause hemorrhagic strokes, seizures, or headaches.

Reducing inflammation boosts cognitive recovery after stroke, may extend treatment window
(Medical University of South Carolina) Reperfusion therapy, the gold standard in stroke treatment, returns blood flow to the affected brain area and must be administered within four hours of stroke to minimize hemorrhage risk. Even with successful return of blood flow, full brain function recovery is rare. Medical University of South Carolina researchers have shown in a preclinical stroke model that adding a unique compound to reduce brain inflammation significantly improves cognitive recovery and extends the treatment window.

Technology and treatment in the field of stroke care: Dayton experts weigh in
When treating life-threatening medical conditions like stroke, time is of the essence. Rapid advances in technology could help. Stroke, the fifth-leading cause of death and one of the leading causes of disability in the U.S., occurs when blood flow to an area of the brain is interrupted, due to either a clot (ischemic) or a broken blood vessel (hemorrhagic). Symptoms are sudden-onset, and the longer blood flow is interrupt ed, the greater the damage. That's why every minute counts.
