Stroke Prevention - Stroke Screening
Stroke is formed as a result of cerebral vascular deficits, its incidence increases exponentially from 30 years of age. In fact, the signs of stroke are traceable through risk screening, in which we can identify the health status of the cerebral vessels, intervention can be taken to lower the risk of strokes.
Comprehensive Stroke Care Service
Stroke Rehabilitation should begin as soon as the patient's medical condition has been stabilized. The first aim is to prevent such secondary problems as stiff joints, falls, bedsores and pneumonia.
Given the disease burden of strokes, prevention is an important public health concern. As stroke neurosurgeons, we do not want to treat stroke unless we are forced to do so for acute stroke treatments in emergency setting; we actually want to prevent stroke by promoting stroke risks screening program & stroke prophylactic treatments.
Is stroke survivor prone to more strokes in future life?
Yes— The risk of stroke for someone who has already had one is many times that of a person who has not. If you've had a heart attack, you're also at higher risk of having a stroke, too.
Search and Treat the Real Cause of Stroke to Prevent Further Stroke within short period of time:
With traditional stroke treatments, most treatments were just empirical medications, without searching for the real cause of stroke; nowadays Stroke Neurosurgeons prefer high quality MRI angiogram or cerebral angiogram to search for the real cause of stroke and treat accordingly; so as to prevent stroke from recurring within short period of time.
