Innovative Stroke Treatment Video – Brigham and Women’s Hospital

Each year, stroke impacts approximately 750,000 to 800,000 individuals in the United States, taking a tremendous toll on these patients, their families, and society in general. A major cause of disability, many stroke survivors are left with significant speech, motor, and memory difficulties and more than half of them can’t return to work.

In this video, Dr. Ali Aziz-Sultan, Chief of Vascular/Endovascular Neurosurgery in the Department of Neurosurgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, outlines the different types of strokes and the newest stroke treatment options that are designed to minimize the long-term effects of stroke. Examples include catheter-based stroke treatments that retrieve blood clots in ischemic stroke and divert blood flow away from aneurysms that can lead to hemorrhagic strokes. He also discusses the benefits of hybrid environments that enable both open and minimally invasive stroke treatment for ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes, in one setting.
