The Comprehensive Stroke Center at University Hospital


Clinical research involving the prevention and treatment of both ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke remains a major focus of the Comprehensive Stroke Center at University Hospital, Newark.

Our research goals include:

  • Improving our understanding of the mechanisms of ischemic and hemorrhagic injury to the brain
  • Innovating strategies for more effective care of the stroke patient
  • Developing more clinically effective strategies in secondary stroke prevention
  • Identifying cost-effective diagnostic testing and treatment

Current on-going research protocols include:

  • Effect of concurrent coil embolization on delayed spontaneous aneurysm rupture following flow diverter placement
  • Meteorological Variables and the Incidence of Ishcemic Stroke
  • Assessment of Clinical Outcome In Patients With Subarachnoid Hemorrhage Due to Ruptured Cerebral Aneurysms.
  • Predicting Outcomes for Patients with Spontaneous Intracerebral Hemorrhages Using Clinical and Imaging Factors.
  • The Effect of Decompressive Craniectomy on ICP Reduction for the Stroke Patient.
