Results of the ‘Cavernomas: A Randomised Effectiveness (CARE) Study’

We’re really pleased to share that the results of ‘Cavernomas: A Randomised Effectiveness (CARE) Study’ have now been published in The Lancet Neurology.  This pilot study was the first of its kind in the UK for cavernoma patients, and takes us a step closer to working out whether treatment of brain cavernoma with medical care and surgery (using either neurosurgery or stereotactic radiosurgery) reduces the risk of a stroke compared to medical care alone.  This study was led by the Chair of our Advisory Board, Professor Rustam Al-Shahi Salman, with the support of CAUK.   To find out more, including what the findings of the study, were please click here.  Our heartfelt thanks go to everyone involved, in particular to Professor David White our retired Scientific Advisor.
