Diagnostic and Treatment Options for Stroke

Neuro-interventionalists, neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons at Atlantic Neuroscience Institute’s Stroke Center at Morristown Medical Center diagnose and treat a broad range of disorders of the brain’s blood vessels, including stroke and aneurysms. Our advanced technologies include:

  • Biplane neuroangioagraphy – This technology creates a three dimensional image of the brain with just one dye injection, greatly simplifying the task of defining abnormalities and planning treatment. Not only are the images far superior to standard x-rays, but the patient requires fewer dye injections, minimizing risk and discomfort.

  • Mechanical thrombectomy – Endovascular surgeons, utilizing either the Merci Retrieval System® or Penumbra System®, can capture and remove a blood clot in the brain up to eight hours following the onset of an ischemic stroke.

  • Intra-operative angiography – In this procedure, x-ray dye is injected into brain’s arteries during brain surgery, providing real time, immediate feedback to the surgeon, which improves accuracy and outcomes.

  • Carotid angioplasty and stenting – Significant narrowing of the carotid artery can substantially increase the risk of stroke. Without using surgery, neuro-interventionalists can enlarge the artery from within and put a stent in place to keep it open. Patients with carotid stenosis who have severe heart disease or other conditions which render them poor candidates for surgery can be treated with these procedures.

  • Intravenous thrombolytics – Medications such as tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), also known as a “clot buster,” have been shown to improve outcomes when provided within the first four and a half hours following a stroke.

  • Transcranial Doppler – Doppler ultrasound measures the speed of blood flow in blood vessels and arteries. This noninvasive technique also assesses blood vessel spasm following subarachnoid hemorrhage and other types of stroke.
