Acute Stroke Treatment

Endovascular treatment of stroke is the nonsurgical treatment for the sudden loss of brain function due to blood clots. Our team inserts thin tubes called microcatheters into the groin and travel to the brain to capture and remove the blood clot causing the stroke. This procedure is called a thrombectomy.

The procedure:

  • Should ideally be done as soon as possible after onset of acute stroke symptoms.
  • Can benefit some patients under certain conditions if done even within 24 hours of symptom onset.
  • Should include IV recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) treatment in eligible patients.
