Stroke – prevention and therapy
Prof. Dr. Helmuth Steinmetz, Clinic for Neurology, on November 19, 2007
Acute brain blood vessel diseases (strokes) are as frequent nowadays as acute blood supply deficiency to the heart. Parallel to the demographic development, stokes will increase dramatically over the next 40 years, and remain one of the main causes for old people needing care. The lecture from Prof. Dr. Helmuth Steinmetz, Director of the Clinic for Neurology at the J.W. Goethe University of Frankfurt, presents the latest information on prevention and acute treatment of strokes, and a valuable insight into neurovascular research.
