Research Summary

Ischemic stroke is a leading cause of death with limited therapeutic options. Blood flow delivery to the area of a stroke is dependent upon many factors. Dr. Wira and stroke researchers with the Yale ED have participated in studies evaluating neuroprotective agents, clot dissolution medications, neuro-interventional procedures, and have also conducted observational studies characterizing the hemodynamic profile and myocardial complications seen in acute stroke patients. This research will lead to the development of better acute therapeutic interventions in ischemic stroke.
