The Comprehensive Stroke Center at University Hospital
Clinical research involving the prevention and treatment of both ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke remains a major focus of the Comprehensive Stroke Center at University Hospital, Newark.
Our research goals include:
- Improving our understanding of the mechanisms of ischemic and hemorrhagic injury to the brain
- Innovating strategies for more effective care of the stroke patient
- Developing more clinically effective strategies in secondary stroke prevention
- Identifying cost-effective diagnostic testing and treatment
Current on-going research protocols include:
- Effect of concurrent coil embolization on delayed spontaneous aneurysm rupture following flow diverter placement
- Meteorological Variables and the Incidence of Ishcemic Stroke
- Assessment of Clinical Outcome In Patients With Subarachnoid Hemorrhage Due to Ruptured Cerebral Aneurysms.
- Predicting Outcomes for Patients with Spontaneous Intracerebral Hemorrhages Using Clinical and Imaging Factors.
- The Effect of Decompressive Craniectomy on ICP Reduction for the Stroke Patient.
