In India out of the total deaths every year, statistics have indicated that 7.4 per cent of the people have succumbed to brain stroke. The cause of a stroke is a blockage in the blood vessels that supply blood to the brain.

Yashodha hospitals, Secunderabad, has announced the launch of a world-class state-of-the-art technology called "Bi-Plane Neuro Angio Procedure Suite" with DTAS (Direct to Angio Suite) technology on the occasion of World Stroke Day.  

The lab was inaugurated by the Hon'ble Governor of Telangana, Dr. Tamilsai Soundarajan in the presence of senior officials of the hospital including Dr Pawan Gorukanti, Director, Yashoda Hospitals Group.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Suresh Giragani, Senior Neuro & Interventional Radiologist, Yashoda Hospitals Hyderabad said, “The people who have had a stroke will have a better chance of getting a better result as soon as the patient reaches the stroke centre after the onset of symptoms and the sooner the patient is treated after reaching the hospital. Delaying every 1 hour before initiation of treatment significantly reduces the chance of a good result by 30 per cent.’’

He further added, “Yashoda Hospitals is at the forefront of brain stroke treatment by launching ‘Stroke Care on Wheels’ special ambulances to provide treatment to brain stroke patients as quickly as possible. These special ambulances are aimed at reducing the time taken from home to the hospital. Yashoda Hospitals is the first in the state to offer the latest technology called "Bi-Plane Neuro Angio Procedure Suite '' which works with DTAS (Direct to Angio Suite) technology at Yashoda Hospitals which already have highly advanced medical procedures for brain stroke treatment. With this “Bi-Plane Neuroangio Procedure Suite,” the scanning tests for brain stroke patients, their results, subsequent treatment decisions, and treatments (Thrombolysis and Thrombectomy) are all done in one room, on the same machine, so that the patient does not have to spend precious time during the golden hour. Thrombolysis and Thrombectomy treatment will be done swiftly. This timely treatment can lead to a quick recovery from paralysis. This suite has advanced imaging capabilities and can move the patient 360 degrees around. The bi-plane system equips our team to provide patient life-saving care with the highest speed and accuracy”.

Dr. Anand Balasubramaniam, Senior Neurosurgeon, Dr. Komal Kumar, Senior Neurologist & others participated in the program along with many Neurologists and Neurosurgeons.
