Episode Info:

Stroke (also known as cerebrovascular disease) occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either blocked by a clot or bursts. When that happens, part of the brain cannot get the blood and oxygen it needs, so it starts to die. Yet, few may realize that not only is time of the essence during a stroke, but as The American Stroke Association notes 80% of stroke cases are preventable. Getting medical care as quickly as possible can help prevent death or minimize some of the lasting effects of stroke.

In this episode of Hadassah on Call, Professor Ronen Leker, a leading expert at Hadassah Medical Organization discusses stroke and how he and his team of researchers are leading the way in exploring a novel cutting-edge stem cell treatment to reverse the disability a stroke leaves in its wake.
