Stroke Program Outcomes

With the advancement of technology more and more patients are being treated for stroke. Patients who are experiencing a stroke and have been identified as having a large vessel blockage can now be treated with a procedure called Mechanical Thrombectomy.

Our dedicated team of stroke experts have been working hard to continue to advance the care for patients who are experiencing a stroke. Since the initiation of this program in December of 2016 we have decreased our times for mechanical thrombectomy by 36%.

Recently published evidence demonstrated that patients who are as far out as 24 hrs after symptoms onset may benefit from a mechanical thrombectomy. At Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center Torrance, we have seen that 83% of these patients show favorable cerebral blood flow after treatment as identified by advanced imaging.
