Dr. Dhamoon’s research interests include modeling outcomes related to stroke, estimation of risk of vascular disease, and the impact of stroke on functional status and quality of life. Under the mentorship of Dr. Mitchell Elkind, he has published data from the Northern Manhattan Study about the risk of cardiac events and recurrent stroke after first ischemic stroke. He has examined the natural history and predictors of post-stroke disability and found that there was a decline in the proportion of patients overall who had good functional outcome over time after stroke, especially those who were uninsured or insured with Medicaid. Another analysis showed similar results for the outcome of quality of life. With Dr. Elkind, he has published a review as a “Special Report” in Circulation on the inclusion of stroke in risk estimation and primary and secondary prevention, and he was a writing member on an American Heart Association statement on this topic. More recent papers have modeled the impact of including stroke in risk estimation of vascular disease and the course of functional decline before and after stroke. He also has begun collaborations on analyses with the Secondary Prevention of Small Subcortical Strokes study and the Cardiovascular Health Study, examining the functional status and quality of life before and after stroke.
