City hospital does rare surgery on brain stroke patient

india Updated: Jul 21, 2011 00:45 IST

Artemis hospital, a multi specialty hospital in Gurgaon excelled in medical excellence by performing 'Bridging Thrombolysis'-- a new line of treatment for brain stroke patients and performing maximum number of brain surgeries in NCR with latest technology.

Uday Singh, 49, was admitted in an unconscious and partial paralytic condition. A CT scan revealed that the basilar artery, which supplies oxygen-rich blood to the brain, was blocked due to clots.

According to neurologist the blockage could not be treated with conventional treatment and medication.

The interventional cardiology team was then involved and together they undertook a complex vascular intervention, known as 'Interventional Management of Stroke'.

In this treatment, thrombolytic drug is administered into the blocked artery to dissolve the clot.

A senior doctor said people need to be sensitised about slight speech imparity, memory loss and restricted movement of some body parts as these could be due to a clot and immediate treatment is needed.
