Brain Attack: The 'Golden Hour' After a CVA

Brain Attack: The 'Golden Hour' After a CVA

Host: Shira Johnson, MD

Guest: Ralph Sacco, MD

Over 700,000 Americans have a new or recurrent stroke each year. Dr Ralph Sacco, professor and chairman of neurology at the University of Miami's Miller School of Medicine, discusses the leading research on treatment in the 'golden hour' after a stroke occurs. He reviews why thrombolytics have led the way after a dry infarct, but why your patients may need additional care only available in a comprehensive stroke center. As chief of neurology at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami and a leading researcher, Dr. Sacco joins host Dr Shira Johnson to talk about the state of the art in care after a CVA.
