Treatment and outcome of treating stroke entirely depends on how early are the patients bought to the hospital. It has been observed that the percentage of acute stroke patients arriving within the “Window Period” has significantly increased, causing more and more patients to be eligible for THROMBOLYTIC THERAPY. It is a treatment done to dissolve the clots in the blood vessels in order to improve the blood flow and avoid damage to the tissues and organs.
This therapy provides a likelihood of recovery in about 40-50% patients, witnessing that there is a standard protocol for both Ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke with all advanced forms of treatment.
No, spine surgery has a success rate of 92-95%. It is indicated for conditions like disc prolapse, spinal canal stenosis and spinal instability, Spine tumours, when the symptoms and signs pertaining to above conditions match the MRI findings.
However, in the absence of neurological deficit like weakness in the limbs, loss of sensation, bowel/bladder disturbances, you should opt for a trial of adequate conservative management- the period of which is normally 3 weeks to 3 months. Conservative therapy can be in the form of analgesics, physiotherapy and lifestyle changes. Despite that, if the pain persists or if there is progression of symptoms, then surgery is advised. Indications for surgery include:
– Onset of a new neurological deficit.
– Bowel / Bladder problems
– Failure of adequate conservative trial
– Neurogenic intermittent claudication (pain, tingling & numbness in legs while walking)
– Intractable back pain interfering with activities of daily living.
