Interventional Radiology

Acute ischemic stroke therapy

In eligible patients a special type of catheter can be used to open up blood vessels in the brain in order to reverse or at lest minimize the damage of an

acute stroke, this type of therapy requires a highly trained and skilled team

and isn’t right for every patient.  Removal of the “clot” is called thrombectomy

and can be done either with or without the clot buster drug TPA.
