The interventional neuroradiologists on the medical staff of CDH who work in the Neurosciences Institute at CDH perform endovascular (within the blood vessels) procedures for patients with stroke, aneurysm, vascular malformations and tumors of the brain, spine, head and neck.
Interventional neuroradiology is a subspecialty of radiology used for the diagnosis and treatment of vascular diseases in the central nervous system. This minimally invasive approach enables doctors to treat many patients with previously untreatable and difficult lesions. Because the technique relies on image guidance and is performed with tiny instruments or needles, most patients have smaller incisions, less risk, lower pain and shorter recovery times.
Clinical Trials, Advanced Services Offer Hope for Stroke Patients
Each year, physicians working in the Neurosciences Institute at CDH treat numerous patients for acute stroke and other neurological emergencies. Through participation in national clinical trials, and with the aid of state-of-the-art interventional neuroradiology devices, specialists on the medical staff at CDH have successfully extended the typical three-hour stroke window to six, eight and sometimes ten hours in some patients, offering new hope to high-risk patients.
