AGA Medical Corporation Launches Third Web-Based Stroke Education and Awareness Video Featuring Professional Football Player Tedy Bruschi
Date:3/25/2009

le to view all videos released to date. AGA Medical Corporation will launch additional initiatives throughout 2009 to build upon this comprehensive stroke education, awareness and prevention campaign.

"We believe that sharing Tedy's story of stroke recovery is an important way to help stroke survivors," said John Barr, chief executive officer of AGA Medical. "As we develop our stroke education and awareness program, Tedy's positive outlook and persistent positive attitude throughout his recovery period serves as the ultimate motivation for those recovering from stroke."

Stroke, defined as a sudden injury to the brain caused by a blood vessel bursting or becoming blocked, is the nation's number 3 cause of death behind heart disease and cancer. The American Heart Association reports that each year, about 700,000 Americans suffer from a stroke. One-third of stroke victims are under 65, and even children can suffer a stroke.

About Tedy Bruschi

Coming off the success of winning his 3rd league championship and playing in the annual league all-star game in February of 2005, Tedy unexpectedly experienced a stroke. On the advice of his physician, a device from AGA Medical was prescribed and implanted as part of Tedy's treatment. After several months of extensive rehabilitation and recovery, Tedy was medically cleared to resume playing football less than a year later. Today, in addition to his continued success on the field, Tedy dedicates a considerable part of his time off the field toward raising stroke awareness and funds for stroke research.
