The stroke is an acutely manifested neurologic deficit, which is caused by the pathologies of the vessels located in the brain.
Vascular diseases include all the injuries, which are the result of the pathologic processes of the blood vessels located in the brain. These processes are diverse and include the blockage of the lumen of the vessel with thrombus or emboli, rupture of the vessel or increase in its permeability, increased blood viscosity or change in its physical or chemical features.
The Stroke Center of the National Center of Surgery offers you the modern approaches to the treatment of the Stroke!
The center has a unique ability. It is equipped with modern machines, staffed by experienced, professional neurosurgeons and neurologists.
The Stroke Center offers you the modern approaches to the treatment of the stroke, which is implemented in the best clinics of America and Europe.
New biplane angiograph Trinias B12 laid the foundation of the Stroke Center development. This equipment is the only one in the region and allows us to do unique operations. It is the latest technology that was sold outside Japan for the first time. Angiograph perfectly meets the requirements of endovascular neurosurgery. The advantage of this machine is biplane feature, which is essential to achieve high resolution.
The treatment of the ischemic stroke at our clinic involves the following steps:
- Management of the acute state;
- Restoring the circulation and stopping the pathologic processes;
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Measures to prevent the recurrence of stroke and vascular processes (secondary prevention);
- The conservative and operative treatment is also provided at our clinic.
The balloon angioplasty of the carotid artery (percutaneous, transluminal, carotid or angioplasty of the vertebral arteries) and stenting of the narrowed cerebral arteries using tubular metal stents are performed at the National Center of Surgery. Carotid endarterectomy is also performed.
It should be noted that the removal of the thrombus from the blood vessel during the acute ischemic stroke is performed at the National Center of Surgery using a short-term procedure – thrombectomy, an exclusive method.
The thrombectomy becomes necessary if the patient develops acute ischemic stroke, which is caused by the thrombus blocking the lumen of the blood vessel, which impairs the blood flow to the brain, which is why the stroke develops. In this case, we remove the thrombotic masses, clear the vessel. This is a minimally invasive intervention, which requires regional anesthesia. This intervention is carried out through a small puncture in the femoral area. The operation is performed under the control of the angiograph.
The uniqueness of a thrombectomy is that a patient who can not move his hands, legs, cannot speak, right after thrombectomy, begins to move limbs on the operating table. The desired effect is already achieved in the operating room. Unlike the traditional surgery, thrombectomy is not characterized by complications, for example, an infection, etc. This is just one puncture in the femoral region.
The National Center of Surgery offers one more modern method of treatment of the acute ischemic stroke, thrombolytic therapy. This kind of therapy is aimed at restoring blood flow in the damaged area of the brain using the recanalization method, as a result of which the existing symptoms of a stroke completely or partially disappear. A tissue plasminogen activator called Activase (alteplase) is used.
Thanks to the Stroke Center of the National Center of Surgery, many patients recovered and returned to the usual rhythm of life, many were discharged from the clinic without a neurologic deficit.
