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.
