About this Research Topic
This Research Topic aims at highlighting the most recent advances and research contributing to understanding the interface of stroke and cardiovascular diseases, thus helping the development of new preventative and therapeutic strategies for post-stroke cardiovascular complications, and also for stroke prevention in people with cardiovascular diseases. Our goal is to provide a spotlight for basic, translational, and clinical studies looking into stroke-heart interactions.
We welcome the submission of any type of manuscript supported by the journal (including Original Research, Review, etc.) pertaining but not limited to the following themes:
- Therapeutic strategies for both primary and secondary stroke prevention in patients with cardiovascular disorders: pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies
- Shared and overlapping risk factors for ischemic stroke and cardiovascular diseases
- Epidemiology, mechanisms, and treatment of cardio-cerebral infarction (synchronous or metachronous acute myocardial infarction and acute ischemic stroke)
- Epidemiology and mechanisms of cardiac dysfunction in ischemic stroke
- Coronary artery disease evaluation in stroke patients with intracranial or extracranial atherosclerotic disease
- Therapeutic strategies for reducing the incidence of cardiovascular complications after stroke: pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies
- Biomarkers for detection of post-stroke atrial fibrillation and atrial cardiopathy
- Prolonged cardiac monitoring (PCM) for post-stroke atrial fibrillation detection
- Clinical devices and biomarkers for early diagnosis and prognosis of post-stroke cardiovascular complications
- Mechanisms of heart failure related to brain ischemia
- The role of extracellular vesicles released after stroke, on heart dysfunction
- The relationships among heart dysfunction, blood-brain-barrier impairment, and brain damage induced by stroke
- Novel imaging that evaluates the heart-brain axis in ischemic stroke
