Advances in Stroke Prevention

In recent years, there have been advances in stroke prevention in relation to nutrition, blood pressure control, antiplatelet therapy, anticoagulation, identification of high-risk asymptomatic carotid stenosis, and percutaneous closure of patent foramen ovale. These will be discussed, as will two issues that may lead to future advances in stroke prevention: a paradigm change to “treating arteries instead of treating risk factors,” and recent findings related to the intestinal microbiome and atherosclerosis.

Prevention of diabetes in Bangladeshis in East London: experiences and views of young people
