Project Details


Clinical Research- The overall focus of this center is stroke prevention in
a defined population. The aim of this research is the identification of
stroke in the population and the determination of the factors that affect
the occurrence of stroke. A randomized clinical trial will assess the
effect of carotid endarterectomy compared to a small dose of aspirin on the
occurrence of stroke in persons with carotid artery stenosis. A
case-control population based study will estimate the independent risk of
stroke for hypertension and cardiovascular risks and the prevalence of
those risk factors over the time from 1960-1984. The incidence of stroke
in Rochester from 1985-1989 will be assessed to determine whether a further
increase has occurred. The risk of stroke from mitral valve prolapse and
from mitral and aortic valvular heart disease will be estimated each with a
population based inception cohort and follow-up through the medical record.
The incidence rate of dementia subsequent to stroke in Rochester will be
estimated and the cumulative probability of the development of dementia
following cerebral infarction will be estimated.
