Stroke, often referred to as “brain attack” happens when the blood vessel that carries the nutrients and oxygen to the brain gets blocked due to sudden ruptures or clots. This causes a depletion in the vital oxygen supply. Consequently, the brain cells die and cripple the functions controlled by the brain. The severity of damage depends on the stroke’s severity and the location of brain injury. Whatever be the stage of severity, for a person to recover and reclaim life, rehabilitation is a blessing and the key to better stroke diagnosis and treatment!
In the case of stroke, the revival of the person depends on whether you act FAST. The stroke diagnosis and treatment have to be done FAST within 3 hours of noticing the initial symptoms.
A tPA is provided through the arm vein to dissolve the blood clot and restore the blood flow. It is given within the first 3 hours after stroke symptoms are observed.
This treatment is provided directly inside the blocked blood vessel. It can be in the form of a catheter tPA delivery to the brain, or by using a stent retriever to remove clot.
Abnormalities in the blood vessel are repaired with the help of surgeries. It can be in the form of surgical clippings, coilings, surgical AVM removal or stereotactic radiosurgery
