    We continue to make advancements in medical technology with new medical devices. I work for a startup medical device company that is developing new Neuro-endovascular (catheters and guide wire devices) designed to address AIS (Acute Ischemic Stroke). Stay tuned! We are making advancements every day.

    Great discussion and explanation not only of what a stroke is, but what treatments are available.  The endovascular procedure saved my mom two days ago.  She had a massive stroke and within a matter of hours she went from the stroke, to paralysis and major impairment to the removal of the blockage and the almost complete reversal of the paralysis and impairment.  It was unbelievable to witness first hand the advancement in medicine.  My family is so thankful to the surgeon Dr. William Mack, his team and everyone at USC Keck Medical center for saving my mom.
