Advances and Potential New Treatments in Stroke Management

Description

Advances in acute stroke treat, new preventive therapies, and research in neurorehabilitation have come a long way in making stroke the 4th leading cause of mortality from the 3rd leading cause. These advances are reflected in several outcomes which include but are not limited to reduced incidence and prevalence of incident and recurrent stroke, reduced need for surgical intervention, image-based triage decisions to decide the best course of acute ischemic stroke management and possible potential of safer, longer-acting drugs in acute thrombolysis, and prevention of recurrent cardioembolic stroke. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Acute stroke management that reflects new advances, such as image-based management, interventional devices, acute stroke trials, use of high dose statins, cooling, and other advances
  • Stroke prevention, where original and review articles are encouraged on topics of advances in stroke prevention, cardioembolic stroke management, role of new antiplatelet agents, anticoagulants, statins, and antihypertensive agents in stroke management and outcomes
  • Stroke rehabilitation strategies including stem cell in stroke management, advances in neurorehabilitation, novel strategies in stroke rehabilitation and outcomes
