Your Health: Stroke Treatment


About 87 percent of all strokes occur when a blood vessel to the brain becomes blocked. The standard treatment for what is called an ischemic stroke is a clot-busting drug, but endovascular therapy – when a clot is removed or treated directly using a catheter guided to its exact location – is showing promise. University of Maryland interventional neuroradiologist Dr. Timothy Miller discusses how he uses this therapy to treat stroke patients.
