Heart and brain in a stroke — how are they related?

Prof. Dr. Mat­thi­as End­res, Direc­tor Cli­nic for Neu­ro­lo­gy with Expe­ri­men­tal Neurology

Heart dise­a­se is a com­mon cau­se of strokes. The­r­e­fo­re, the search for car­diac dise­a­ses in pati­ents with stro­ke is very important. Stu­dies in recent years sug­gest that heart func­tion can also be direct­ly impai­red by a stro­ke. Pro­fes­sor Dr. Mat­thi­as End­res and PD Dr. Jan Scheitz have been rese­ar­ching the rela­ti­onships bet­ween the heart and the brain in strokes for many years. In your lec­tu­re you will dis­cuss the com­plex inter­ac­tion bet­ween heart and brain based on cur­rent stu­dy results.
