From the Heart: Young and Elderly Stroke Survivors (05:11)
Survivors of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure have an increased risk of stroke. Young and old victims of stroke are left critically injured, and require intense years of therapy to reach complete or partial recovery.
European Stroke Care (04:20)
Arindam Kar, head of London’s Charing Cross Hospital Stroke Unit, explains stroke patients require highly specialized care from therapists, doctors, dietitians, and pharmacists. Victims of stroke should be placed in intensive care in a hyper acute stroke unit as quickly as possible.

Anno's Advanced Surgery (06:51)
Dr. Khan prepares himself and a patient for a new, specialized heart procedure intended to reverse atrial fibrillation; clinical trials are testing new anticoagulants to prevent stroke. A global medical registry for atrial fibrillation patients is being created.
