FAQ



If you or a loved one is at risk for a stroke or has already had one, you might be curious

about what is used for treatment after a stroke. When a person has a stroke, there are

medications and treatments that can help restore blood flow to the brain. Not only does blood

flow need to be restored, but the patient will need ongoing treatment to aid in the recovery

process.

Depending on the area of the brain that was affected, the patient will likely need years of

therapy to help gain back the use of that part of the brain again. Most patients need some

level of care throughout the rest of their life in one way or another. First, we will talk

about what happens immediately after a stroke for treatment. Secondly, we will cover what

types of therapies and treatments are used in the recovery process long-term for the patient.

Treatment Right After a Stroke

The treatment for the stroke depends on what type of stroke it was. Ischemic strokes happen

when there is a blocked artery that leads to your brain either from of plaque building in the

arteries or narrowing of the arteries causing a blood clot that comes loose. Ischemic strokes

are the most common type of stroke. Treatment for ischemic strokes might include:

Use of thrombolytics
These are drugs that help dissolve clots that might be blocking the blood flow to the brain
These are given as quickly as possible to give the patient the greatest advantage for

recovery
tPA treatment
tPA is an enzyme that we have in our bodies and doctors can administer a dose through pill or

IV form
It helps speed up the clot dissolving process and should be given within a 3 hour window from

when the symptoms of the stroke began
MERCI retrieval system
Innovative tool that helps remove clots in patients who cannot use IV-tPA or do not respond

to that treatment
It is a corkscrew type device that wraps around the clot to trap it and then remove it from

the body
Penumbra System
Use of suction for removal of blood clots in the brain of acute ischemic strokes
Can be used within 8 hours of symptom onset with success

With a hemorrhagic stroke, the doctors will include treatments that help control the bleeding

in your brain. This assists in reducing the pressure on the brain and to create stable vital

signs. Blood pressure is the most important to get stabilized. The patient will be monitored

closely for signs that they have increased pressure on the brain. Sometimes surgery is needed

to repair an aneurysm if that is what caused the brain bleed.

Long-Term After Care for Stroke Patients

For many patients, the recovery process will begin with a formal rehabilitation. This can

help restore the patient’s independence by helping them gain back their physical, emotional

and mental functions. Learning the most about stroke recovery can give you the best benefit.

There is life after stroke and regaining your independence is the first step to recovery.

Each patient will have a different recovery plan based on the area of the brain that was

affected during the stroke.
