Aguilar.Maria@mayo.edu Clinical Profile

Summary

The research interests of Maria I. Aguilar, M.D., include intracerebral hemorrhage, cardioembolic stroke, atrial fibrillation and stroke, antithrombotic therapy for stroke prevention, kidney disease and stroke, stroke in women, stroke in minorities, stroke education and simulation, and quality in clinical practice.

Focus areas

  • Kidney disease and stroke, specifically whether renal biomarkers (glomerular filtration rate, albuminuria and cystatin C) are predictors of stroke recurrence or markers of stroke severity and stroke subtype

  • Use of simulation in stroke education for neurology residents at Mayo Clinic in Arizona

Significance to patient care

The identification of the relationship between renal biomarkers and risk of future stroke will allow additional interventions for stroke prevention. Enhanced education for current trainees will improve the quality of future professionals.
