New Procedure Quickly Removes Blood from Brain after Intracerebral Hemorrhage.

Englewood, CO, October 11, 2019 --(PR.com)-- HCA Healthcare/HealthONE’s Swedish Medical Center, a level I trauma center and the Rocky Mountain Region’s first Joint Commission certified comprehensive stroke center, is the first hospital in Denver to offer minimally invasive surgery to remove blood clot from the brain using a neuro evacuation device. This novel procedure holds the potential to benefit patients suffering from hemorrhagic stroke who typically face limited treatment options and a low survival rate.

Hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a weakened blood vessel ruptures and bleeds into the surrounding brain. The most common cause is hypertension (high blood pressure), which usually has no symptoms. This leaves many people unaware that they need to be treated before the hemorrhage occurs. Up to half of all people who suffer from this type of stroke die, with many of these deaths occurring within two days of onset. For those who survive, recovery is slow and oftentimes includes a lengthy and costly hospital stay as well as extensive therapy.

“For patients who suffer from intracerebral hemorrhage, removing the blood from the brain quickly and completely may facilitate their recovery,” said Eric Arias, MD, endovascular neurosurgeon at Swedish Medical Center. “Now that we have the technology to remove the blood, it is our hope that we will not only be able to save these patients’ lives, but give them a better chance at full recovery.”

Some possible signs of hemorrhagic stroke include sudden weakness, tingling, or paralysis in the face, arm, or leg, (especially on one side); sudden onset of severe headache; trouble with vision; loss of balance and coordination; nausea and vomiting; and trouble with language skills (reading, writing, speaking, or understanding). This is a serious medical condition that requires immediate attention. If someone is having these symptoms, it is important that 911 is called immediately.
