    Secondary stroke prevention

    There have been many advances in secondary stroke prevention strategies and the diagnostic tools available to stroke clinicians. Prevention of a second stroke depends on identification of the first stroke's cause as well as management of risk factors. Since clinical criteria alone are not sufficient to determine stroke cause, diagnostic testing must be utilized. Experienced neurosurgeons and interventional radiologists are available when preventative procedures are required. Follow-up is available at University Pavilion and Jackson Medical Mall clinics.
