"The goal is to improve the outcome in patients who otherwise would have deadly or disabling strokes," says Randall Edgell, MD, interventional neurologist at Saint Louis University Hospital and a SLUCare physician.
"I think this is going to be a transformative moment in how we treat stroke," says Dr. Edgell, who has used the stent for several years at SLU Hospital. "Now we have two very powerful treatments that can halt - and in some cases reverse - stroke symptoms and I think that will motivate people to get medical attention more often and more quickly."
Overall, the message Dr. Edgell and all stroke experts want for the public, is to recognize stroke symptoms by the acronym FAST. Facial drooping, arm weakening, speech difficulty, and time to call 911.
"Most of the time when we are not able to offer this treatment or tPA it's because patients have waited too long, hoping symptoms would improve on their own, and what the best strategy would be is to take no chances and come directly to the emergency room," says Dr. Edgell.
He says the technology should be useful as well for members of the MidAmercia Stroke Network, founded by SLU Hospital in 2008 to help build collaboration among hospitals and help stroke patients throughout the region.

"As soon as blood flow is halted by a clot, the brain tissue that is supplied by that blood starts to melt away," said Randall Edgell, MD, a SLUCare interventional neurologist at Saint Louis University Hospital, and one of the neurospecialists serving the MidAmerica Stroke Network.
"This is a transformative moment in how we treat stroke," said Dr. Edgell. "Using a wire mesh cylinder that allows us to access the brain arteries and the blood clot, we can retrieve the entire clot along with any surrounding fragments, restoring blood flow to brain much more quickly."
The retrievable stent has been used at SLU Hospital for several years. This latest clinical research just confirms what neurospecialists like Dr. Edgell have known all along: the retrievable stent is a game-changer that's impacting outcomes.
For patients who miss the three- hour window for treatment with pharmaceutical treatment, such as tissue plasminogen activator, (tPA) or for those patients with large vessel occlusion for which tPA has very limited efficacy, additional therapy such as stent thrombectomy with the retrievable stent may be the only treatment option. "The key with any stroke treatment - stent and tPA - is for patients to recognize stroke symptoms. Most of the time, when we are not able to offer either treatment, it's because patients waited too long to seek medical treatment," said Dr. Edgell. "Hopefully, the advances we're seeing in stroke treatment will also serve as a reminder to the public to be more aware and take action at the first sign of a stroke.
