The key areas of medical therapy for ischemic stroke

Full Text:


The paper considers the main therapeutic and preventive areas of management of patients with stroke, which are relied on evidence-based medicine data. To treat stroke patients is a multistep and multidisciplinary problem that starts with the emergence of the first neurological symptoms and extends over the entire life. Each period, including factors, such as the pattern of prehospital first medical aid; the rate of patient delivery to hospital; further actions of medical staff; measures for the prevention of recurrent cerebral ischemic events, cardiac complications, and cognitive disorders, is of importance in itself and serves a common aim. All efforts must aim eventually to reduce death rates in acute stroke, patient functional dependence, and recurrent brain damage rates, to prevent and timely treat cognitive impairments, to strictly adhere to the principles of secondary treatment of cardiovascular events in order to increase life expectancy and quality.
