Project Overview

Ischemic stroke occurs when a person suffers a sudden blockage of an artery in their brain. Severe strokes caused by blockage of large brain arteries are treated with a very effective mechanical clot-removal procedure called thrombectomy. However, there are still unanswered questions regarding certain subgroups of thrombectomy-treated stroke patients. One…

Project Overview

Carotid disease accounts for 10% of ischemic strokes and has high rate of recurrence of up to 30%-50%(1, 2). There is lack of adequate updated data on its prevalence, recurrence rates and treatment options. This is especially true for newly identified disease mechanisms like carotid web and low grade stenosis(3,…

Project Overview

Stroke happens to 62,000 people each year in Canada.2 Although most people survive their stroke, the brain damage that occurs can lead to problems with movement, vision, communication, swallowing, mood and thinking. Members of our research team were involved in the development of a new treatment to help stroke survivors.…

Project Overview

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common heart rhythm disorder. Its name comes from the fibrillation (i.e. quivering) of the two upper chambers (atria) of the heart instead of a coordinated contraction, causing a rapid, irregular heart rate. This irregular contraction is ineffective, leading to the development clots in the…

Project Overview

Acute ischemic stroke represents the vast majority of strokes. The priority in mitigating the impact is getting to hospital quickly. Once at the hospital we use medical imaging to determine the type of stroke and type of treatment. Medical imaging provides many measurements of brain tissue for the assessment of…
