Where is the best stroke treatment?
The main treatment for an ischemic stroke is a medicine called tissue plasminogen activator (tPA). It breaks up the blood clots that block blood flow to your brain.
A healthcare provider will inject tPA into a vein in your arm. This type of medicine must be given within 3 hours after stroke symptoms start.
Can stroke be treated completely?
Some people recover fully, but others have long-term or lifelong disabilities.
