Intermountain Vein Center Announces Groundbreaking Guidelines in Treatment of Acute Ischemic Stroke
Date:5/28/2013

Orem, Utah (PRWEB) May 28, 2013

When it comes to treating a stroke, time is everything. Each passing second counts, and after a patient is admitted, treatment must begin immediately.

How treatment of a stroke is managed is a matter of life and death. Treatment options are complex and decisions must be made quickly. The care process must flow smoothly among many specialists and departments, ranging from the emergency room through rehabilitation care. With this in mind, a panel of doctors collaborated to establish groundbreaking guidelines for effective treatment of acute stroke treatment.

Doctors from eight different internationally recognized medical societies recently published effective guidelines for intra-arterial (endovascular) treatment of severe cases acute ischemic stroke. Society representatives, like Dr. Black, were involved reviewing key parameters outlined in the guidelines. The expert panel drew from the latest scientific research.

Carl M. Black, MD, of Utah Valley Interventional Associates and the Intermountain Vein Center, served as a co-author in the creation of these evidence-based practice guidelines, established to help prevent the devastation of acute ischemic stroke. Dr. Black represented the American Society of Neuroradiology.

These revolutionary guidelines for intra-arterial therapy reflect landmark progress in stroke treatment, particularly those strokes that could benefit from directly removing a blood clot from larger arteries in the brain using a small catheter. Participating doctors proposed that by following the strict evidence-based treatment recommendations, patients are more likely to survive and recover with minimal or no disability.

President Marshall E. Hicks, MD, of the Society of the Interventional Radiology (SIR), said in a press release that the guidelines were a collaborative effort that will dramatically improve stroke treatment.

"These groundbreaking guidelines are the product of two years of collaboration among multidisciplinary teams from eight societies," President Hicks explained. "With real progress being made in research and treatment of stroke over the last decade, this distinguished group of international authors from societies whose members perform minimally invasive stroke treatments felt that the time was right for a consensus on how to effectively treat and manage stroke patients."

The treatment guidelines are expected to save lives, even as stroke research continues and data is collected from stroke treatment centers worldwide.
