Medical Mondays — Watch a Video on a New Stroke Treatment

This week’s Medical Monday reshares a new stroke treatment — mechanical thrombectomy. This endovascular procedure has shown greater success for removing large blood clots when compared to traditional treatment methods alone.

Historically, doctors have only used medication to reduce blood clots (tPA therapy) for stroke treatment. Thanks to research conducted at UPMC and other facilities, doctors worldwide now have a new option for treating strokes.

Learn more about mechanical thrombectomy at the UPMC Stroke Institute.
