Child Stroke: Identify signs early
Stroke management care
Stroke is the leading cause of acquired disability in children. About 70% of children affected by stroke will suffer from sequelae, whether a physical disability or an irreversible loss of intellectual capacity. Children with stroke may undergo thrombolysis. This technique involves injecting a treatment that dissolves the clot that blocks the artery of the brain that causes stroke. This treatment reduces the risk of death and disability by 10%.
These risks have been reduced by 20% since 2015 through mechanical thrombectomy. This medical technique is used in addition to thrombolysis to unclog the cerebral artery responsible for the stroke. It allows the blood clot to be extracted using a probe inserted into the artery from the thigh.
