Dr Crichton publishes in Stroke

MedStats team member, Dr Crichton, publishes along with collegues a study in Stroke titled: ‘Effect of Exhaust- and Nonexhaust-Related Components of Particulate Matter on Long-Term Survival After Stroke’

The study using data from the South London Stroke Register concluded that ‘exposure to certain outdoor PM pollution, particularly PM2.5, increased mortality risk poststroke up to 5 years after the initial stroke’.
