The Summary of Purpose was updated.
New
Previous studies in animals and humans has shown that brief periods of reduced blood flow to one organ or tissue in the body can help protect other tissues from subsequent injury caused by reduced blood flow such as a stroke. This phenomenon is known as remote ischemic preconditioning and may help protect brain cells after a stroke. The investigators are studying a specific stroke type called subcortical stroke that is very common and has a high rate of recurrent stroke and cognition problems despite intensive prevention measures.
