Transient Ischemic Attack clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
Transient Ischemic Attack is a brief stroke that can happen when blood flow to the brain is blocked. UCSF is now recruiting for a clinical trial called "Sleep for Stroke Management and Recovery Trial". This study aims to see if treating sleep apnea starting after a stroke or high-risk TIA can improve recovery. Candidates will be monitored for two years.
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
The purpose of this study is to determine whether treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with positive airway pressure starting shortly after acute ischemic stroke or high risk TIA (1) reduces recurrent stroke, acute coronary syndrome, and all-cause mortality 6 months after the event, and (2) improves stroke outcomes at 3 months in patients who experienced an ischemic stroke.
