What procedures help stroke?

Carotid surgery. It depends on type--- carotid stenting-- carotid endarterectomy-- merci retrieval to remove a blood clot aneurysm embolization.
Thrombectomy. When a stroke occurs, there can be brain which has a relatively low blood supply but is still alive and salvageable along with already dead brain. We call this salvageable region the "penumbra" and we can rescue this with a thrombectomy technique. Some patients don't have a salvageable penumbra and aren't candidates for thrombectomy. There are special ct perfusion scans we use to determine this.
