The new virus from China, your questions

For selected patients with acute stroke, “endovascular treatment” seems to be the best option. In five new clinical studies, functional neurological independence was significantly better with endovascular treatment. This is an important medical topic, but it is not important for everybody. It is not important, for example, for the patients and their families. It is not important even for the GP of the patient. But for example it is important for the emergency medical services, for the ambulance. They will now know to which hospital to deliver selected patients with acute stroke. Keep in mind, however, that only a small proportion of patients with an acute stroke — about 10% by an editorialist’s estimate — will be suitable for endovascular treatment. And you, as a patient or as a family member, please keep in mind: If you notice the first signs of stroke, immediately call the ambulance. Call 144.
