The update of the Canadian Stroke Best Practice Recommendations Secondary Prevention of Stroke module reinforces the growing and changing body of research evidence available to guide stroke prevention services.A coordinated and organized approach to assessment and aggressive risk factor management is emphasized throughout this module. Prevention plays a crucial role in counteracting morbidity and mortality related to ischemic stroke. It has been estimated that 50% of stroke are preventable through control of modifiable risk factors and lifestyle changes. Antihypertensive treatment is recommended for both prevention of recurrent stroke and other vascular events.

  Despite clear evidence for the effectiveness of oral anticoagulation (OA) in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), there is evidence for the underutilisation of this therapy in the secondary stroke prevention. We therefore investigate the link between the use of OA in stroke patients with AF and favourable clinical outcome following the acute by: Clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) enable PTs and PTAs to understand the state of the evidence as it stands. They are key to decreasing unwarranted variations in practice, decreasing the knowledge translation gap, and optimizing movement.   The following are key points to remember from this review on embolic stroke of undetermined source (ESUS): About 17% of ischemic stroke patients have ESUS (i.e., strokes manifesting with infarcts > cm [nonlacunar infarcts]) without a known etiology such as carotid disease, atrial fibrillation, infective endocarditis, drug use, etc.   How should these conflicting clinical data be used to guide clinical practice? First, there is strong evidence that diuretics, or a combination of ACE inhibitors with diuretics, are effective for both primary and secondary prevention of stroke. Second, it can be concluded that ARBs are, at least currently, of dubious utility for stroke : Anding Xu, Zefeng Tan.

Therefore, a clinical trial investigating CBD in vascular disease and obesity would serve an immediate public health need and is a necessary next step in advancing stroke prevention. FIG. 2.

However, as em phasized in Handbook of Stroke Prevention in Clinical Practice, despite these gains and the initial decline in stroke incidence that did occur in the s and s, the incidence of stroke disappointingly has failed to show a fur ther significant decline since that time.

Prevention Strategies. Because women are underrepresented in clinical stroke prevention trials, it is unclear whether current evidence-based practices apply to : Amber Randel.

The question of which nurses should provide the bulk of stroke prevention has been explored by different authors. Bergman () argued that most practice nurses are involved in health promotion and undertake most risk assessments for stroke, but recommended that general practice adopts a more structured approach to the use of clinical guidelines.

Aspirin therapy (81 mg/d or mg every other day) can be useful in women ≥65 years of age if blood pressure is controlled and the benefit for ischemic stroke prevention is likely to outweigh the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding and hemorrhagic stroke (class IIa); aspirin therapy may be reasonable for women.

The NIH StrokeNet—which consists of a centralized coordinating and data management center and 29 regional centers that are linked to nearly stroke hospitals across the U.S.—conducts small and large clinical trials and research studies to advance acute stroke treatment, prevention, and recovery and rehabilitation following a stroke.
