Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Stroke
  • Surgery

Peter M. Rothwell focuses on Stroke, Surgery, Internal medicine, Endarterectomy and Carotid endarterectomy. His Stroke study combines topics in areas such as Odds ratio, Stenosis, Vascular disease, Physical therapy and Risk factor. In his research, Risk assessment is intimately related to Meta-analysis, which falls under the overarching field of Odds ratio.

Peter M. Rothwell combines subjects such as Absolute risk reduction and Case fatality rate, Epidemiology with his study of Surgery. Many of his studies on Internal medicine apply to Cardiology as well. His Carotid endarterectomy research also works with subjects such as

  • Perioperative that intertwine with fields like Blood vessel prosthesis,
  • Internal carotid artery, which have a strong connection to Cerebral angiography.

His most cited work include:

  • External validity of randomised controlled trials: “To whom do the results of this trial apply?” (1651 citations)
  • Analysis of pooled data from the randomised controlled trials of endarterectomy for symptomatic carotid stenosis. (1254 citations)
  • Early decompressive surgery in malignant infarction of the middle cerebral artery: a pooled analysis of three randomised controlled trials (1230 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Peter M. Rothwell spends much of his time researching Stroke, Internal medicine, Cardiology, Surgery and Stenosis. His work carried out in the field of Stroke brings together such families of science as Physical therapy, Emergency medicine and Risk factor. His work on Blood pressure, Myocardial infarction, Ischaemic stroke and Aspirin as part of general Internal medicine study is frequently connected to In patient, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His Minor stroke study in the realm of Cardiology connects with subjects such as Transient. His Surgery study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Odds ratio. The various areas that he examines in his Stenosis study include Asymptomatic and Angiography.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Stroke (56.50%)
  • Internal medicine (48.30%)
  • Cardiology (34.10%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Stroke (56.50%)
  • Internal medicine (48.30%)
  • Cardiology (34.10%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary scientific interests are in Stroke, Internal medicine, Cardiology, Blood pressure and Population based study. His Stroke research includes themes of Prospective cohort study, Cohort study and Hazard ratio. His work on Minor stroke, Cohort, Confidence interval and Stenosis as part of general Internal medicine research is frequently linked to In patient, bridging the gap between disciplines.

In the field of Cardiology, his study on Myocardial infarction overlaps with subjects such as Transient. His research integrates issues of Randomized controlled trial and Beat in his study of Blood pressure. His research in Population based study intersects with topics in Meta-analysis, Dementia and Emergency medicine.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Analysis of shared heritability in common disorders of the brain (726 citations)
  • Use of aspirin to reduce risk of initial vascular events in patients at moderate risk of cardiovascular disease (ARRIVE): a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. (306 citations)
  • Effects of aspirin on risks of vascular events and cancer according to bodyweight and dose: analysis of individual patient data from randomised trials. (154 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Stroke

His main research concerns Stroke, Internal medicine, Cardiology, Cohort study and Cohort. His research in Stroke is mostly concerned with Brain ischemia. His Internal medicine study is mostly concerned with Hazard ratio, Aspirin, Ischemic stroke, Risk factor and Confidence interval.

His study in Cardiology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Magnetic resonance imaging, Disease and Pathogenesis. His Cohort study research integrates issues from Demography and Modified Rankin Scale. Peter M. Rothwell has researched Cohort in several fields, including Rehabilitation, Rivermead post-concussion symptoms questionnaire, Psychological intervention, Time trends and Transient global amnesia.
