New Treatment for Deadliest
Stroke, Inner Cranial Hemmorhage
Single and multi-center peer-reviewed published
results for a new standardized way to surgically treat hemorrhagic stroke that
removes greater than 95% of the blood from the brain is leading to improved morbidity
and impressive functional recovery in patients versus the current standard of
care. But it’s still a stroke of luck to have these new technologies available
to patients at a hospital in or near their hometown. The stars aligned just
right for Cathy the day she suffered from a hemorrhagic stroke because she was
visiting her mom in Cleveland, a city where the hospital uses the technologies.
Thanks to a surgeon
who was trained on the NICO BrainPath technology that provides minimally
disruptive access to reach a hematoma by navigating through the natural folds
of the brain, Cathy says it’s hard to tell she even had a stroke. She’s
walking, talking and setting a new norm for stroke recovery.
