The Stroke Center is one of New Jersey's leading academically based comprehensive stroke programs and was established to provide early diagnosis and management of acute stroke and to reduce the disability and mortality from stroke.
The Center is staffed and equipped to evaluate,
treat and prevent all forms of stroke and vascular
conditions leading to stroke. Treatment modalities
include surgical and drug treatments, as well
as innovative endovascular procedures including
intra-arterial tPA, mechanical clot-busting, angioplasty
with stenting, and embolic protection in the removal
of blockages in the brain.
The most appropriate level of care is offered
to stroke patients in specialized neuro-intensive
care and stroke step-down units staffed by trained
stroke specialists. Rapid diagnosis is aided by
the latest imaging techniques, including CT-angiography
and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA).
Physician-scientists and researchers at the Stroke
Center are involved in research supported by the
National Institutes of Health (NIH), medical foundations
and other sources.
