Avatar n tn There is currently no data whatsoever, showing benefit of plavix in stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation. The two current standards of care are aspirin and coumadin...with the later being undoubtably more effective in patients that can tolerae it. Alot of people have peripheral neuropathy and do perfectly well without falls. I usually prefer coumadin unless there is a definite risk. Any regimen that would attempt to use plavix, should at least include aspirin sine it is proven.
Avatar m tn Of course there is a difference in preparation and lowering your risks to help prevent stroke or heart attack. Prevention is always the best approach, as much as possible that is.

Avatar m tn I would say in general terms that loss of peripheral vision be it from glaucoma, stroke, retinal disease like retinitis pigmentosa or other causes is usually not something that can be rehabilitated. There are some new computer programs with vision simulators that try to help patients try to rehabilitate the use of lost peripheral vision mainly from stroke and there has be at least some encouraging, though limited, results with that.
Avatar f tn hi there, and yes some people get these tests done...are you going for a Sleep Study? where you sleep overnight at a hospital or medical clinic?? is so, that is where they attach all the "things" on your head.. it doesn't hurt.. also, a VEP, they do something the same, but it doesn't take long and doesn't hurt. they could be trying to rule out things as well as getting information to help get to a DX.. do you have Vertigo at all? If so, it could be for that?
Avatar n tn Treatment of stroke depends on whether the stroke is ischemic or hemorrhagic and on the underlying cause of the condition. The long-term goals of treatment include rehabilitation and prevention of additional strokes. In your uncle’s case it could be ischaemic or hemorrhagic stroke due to high BP. If it is a ischaemic infarct, anti platelet drugs, anti coagulants and thrombolytics are employed in the treatment. If it is hemorrhagic infarct the hematoma needs to be evacuated with surgery.
Avatar f tn Her cardiologist said the type of heart disease she had would not cause a stroke which is what that that sounded like. She had, and still has trouble with words dropping out of sentences when she reads ect. Three years later (about the age of 13) we saw a neurologist who confirmed she had had a stroke in the occipital area of the brain. Turned out that her heart disease was not the culprit; she had a bleeding coagulopathy which caused the stroke.
Avatar f tn If he was falling frequently, sometimes the risk of staying on these meds (bleeding with fall that could lead to death) outweighs the benefit (stroke prevention which is a few percent per year), which is something his physician needs to determine. Given his age, and history of blood in stool and falls, it is reasonable to keep him on warfarin (coumadin), especially due to the evidence in people over 75 on Pradaxa, and the difficulty of reversal with Xarelto given his falls history.
Avatar m tn Search for ‘Antiplatelet therapy for secondary prevention of stroke’. Under Aspirin, you will get the details. Good Luck. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Avatar n tn Though they are of no immediate threat, all these causes, and the presence of ischemic changes can be a risk factor for future stroke.
Avatar m tn I'm a 50 year old male with a family history of heart disease and stroke and am trying to prevent it if possible. I exercise daily and maintain a healthy diet. Will this be good enough in the long run? I tend to worry about it too much because of the problems my parents had but I think my numbers are good. BP runs about 115/65 on average and my total cholesterol is about 100, HDL 45. My glucose is about 85 so hopefully this will keep me out of trouble.
Avatar n tn After reading the studies use one to back up your suggestion for an alternative treatment. Stroke can be caused by both clots and bleeds. Plavix is generally prescribed following a stroke from a clot. Often clots are caused by simple dehydration and inactivity. If you go off the Plavix keep well hydrated at all times with electrolytes.
Avatar f tn Though they are of no immediate threat, all these causes, and the presence of ischemic changes can be a risk factor for future stroke. Hence, prevention methods should include a healthy lifestyle, and a combination of diet, exercise, and medicines. Please discuss with your treating doctors.
Avatar f tn My father had a stroke 5 years ago and has not yet fully recovered my question is that prior to his stroke he went to the doctor with neck pain and blurred vision and headaches the doctor sent him for a MRI should the MRI have show the clot he is blocked 100 percent n his cartiod artery I just need to know if this could of been prevented
Avatar n tn When blood flow to the brain is suddenly stopped, this is a stroke. A stroke is accompanied by clinical symptoms such as weakness on one side, slurred speech, visual problems, or problems with thinking or language. For example, a MRI report might mention left sided brain changes that suggest the appearance of a stroke. If this is the cause of a patient?
