Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Stroke is a leading cause of disability. A stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted. The blood may be interrupted through a blocked artery (ischaemic stroke) or bursts (haemorrhagic stroke). Every stroke is different, and the severity of the damage caused during the stroke will determine the individual’s recovery and any disabilities.

For this Special Issue titled “Clinical Risk Factors and Treatment of Stroke: Expert Views”, we would like to invite authors across various clinical specialities to submit their original papers or review articles on specific risk factors and novel therapeutic approaches to stroke.

This issue will focus on the advances and innovations in risk factor prevention and restorative therapies that enhance the patient’s poststroke outcome, highlighting novel systems or devices and outcomes of clinical management protocols.

Articles on innovative interventions using brain stimulation, neurostimulation or new pharmacological therapies, or physical activities that promote recovery and neuroplasticity would be welcome for submission.

This issue will also be open to articles focusing on neuroimaging, neurophysiological methods (e.g., EEG and related techniques), or studies on predictive algorithms that can forecast poststroke outcomes using sophisticated machine learning techniques.
