Drug pumped straight into brain gives hope to stroke patients

Drug pumped straight into brain gives hope to stroke patients Scientists have camed up with a procedure to remove blood clots the size of a golf ball from stroke patients by injecting a drug straight into the brain could offer hope for sufferers.

During the treatment, surgeons cut a hole the size of a small coin in the patient's skull.A catheter is passed into the brain tissue and pushed through the longest part of the clot. The clot busting drug called recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA), is then applied to the clot via the catheter every eight hours for about three days and the clot is removed through the catheter.
