Abstract

Hypothermia is considered nature's "gold standard" for neuroprotection, and its efficacy for improving outcome in patients with hypoxic-ischemic brain injury as a result of cardiac arrest is well-established. Hypothermia reduces brain edema and intracranial pressure in patients with tra...read more

Hemorrhagic Stroke

Hemorrhagic strokes consist of subarachnoid hemorrhage and intracerebral hemorrhage and are a dominant cause of death and disability worldwide. Discover the latest research on hemorrhagic strokes here.

Intracranial Hemorrhages

Intracranial hemorrhage (ICH), also known as intracranial bleed, is bleeding within the skull. Subtypes are intracerebral (intraventricular and intraparenchymal), subarachnoid, epidural, and subdural. Discover the latest research on intracranial hemorrhages here.

Brain Injury & Trauma

brain injury after impact to the head is due to both immediate mechanical effects and delayed responses of neural tissues.

Acute Stroke

A stroke occurs when blood supply to the brain is interrupted depriving the brain of oxygen and nutrients. This feed focuses cerebrovascular accidents including ischemic and paralytic stroke.

Ischemic Vascular Disease

Ischemic vascular disease occurs when there is reduced blood flow and supply through a vessel. When plaque builds up in arteries it is known as atherosclerosis and can affect many different arteries throughout the body, including the heart, brain, legs, arms and kidneys. Discover the latest research on ischemic vascular disease here.

Deep Vein Thrombosis

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) can be a serious life-threatening condition if not treated. DVT results from a clot forming in one of the deep veins, usually in the lower leg. If the clot breaks free it can lead to a pulmonary embolism and/or post-thrombotic syndrome. Here is the latest research on DVT.

Neurotoxicity, Inflammation & Neuroprotection

The end result of the inflammatory process, neurotoxicity and/or neuroprotection, is a function of the fine balance between the two cellular systems, i.e., of the complex signaling relationships between anti-inflammatory neuroprotective factors (neurotrophins and other chemical mediators) and proinflammatory neurotoxic factors (tnf, free radicals, certain cytokines, etc). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to neurotoxicity, inflammation and neuroprotection.

Brain Ischemia

Brain ischemia is a condition in which there is insufficient blood flow to the brain to meet metabolic demand. Discover the latest research on brain ischemia here.
