BMC Cardiovascular Disorders is calling for submissions to our Collection on Cerebrovascular Disorders.
Cerebrovascular disorders comprise a range of distinct pathologies, including ischaemic and haemorrhagic stroke, transient ischaemic attack, and other intracranial vascular disorders (e.g. vascular malformations and unruptured aneurysms), and significantly increase the risk of vascular dementia. Cerebrovascular disorders represent a significant medical and economic challenge which is anticipated to increase in parallel with a global ageing population. The past decade has brought great progress in diagnostic and therapeutic options but more needs to be done to improve the life of patients. Advances in basic science techniques and medical technologies hold great potential to improve the management of cerebrovascular disorders in the coming decades; however, rigorously designed translational research programs are needed to bring novel discoveries to the clinic.
