Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in Hong Kong and often leaves survivors with long-term effects that diminish their quality of life and require extensive treatment.

 

The Comprehensive Stroke Program at Hong Kong Adventist Hospital - Stubbs Road is specially designed to help patients prevent stroke and to meet the specialized needs of stroke patients. With the support of state-of-the-art medical technology, the program is managed by our multidisciplinary team of professionals including specialists in neurology, neurosurgery, and radiology; our 24-hour Urgent Care department; the Intensive Care Unit (ICU); the Special Care Unit (SCU); and the Rehabilitation Center.

 

   
 

Services included in the Comprehensive Stroke Program:

 

Facilities

This multidisciplinary program is supported by on-site, cutting-edge medical facilities:

  • Comprehensive cerebrovascular imaging technologies are readily available, including state-of-the-art diagnostic MRI and CT, as well as CT angiography with 3D reconstruction.
  • The Catheterization and Interventional Center is equipped for catheter angiography and endovascular intervention.
  • The ICU and SCU offer continuous blood pressure, ECG, and oximetry monitoring, as well as intensive neurological observation to safeguard the well-being of patients who have received thrombolytic treatment.

 

We offer streamlined access to comprehensive diagnostic treatment and rehabilitation resources for stroke. 

 

Upon patient arrival, the hospital will arrange for:

  • Immediate evaluation of patient by 24-Hour Urgent Care physicians
  • Electrocardiography (ECG), blood tests, and computed tomography (CT) within minutes of 24-Hour Urgent Care evaluation
  • Prompt neurovascular care and hospitalization at SCU or ICU if needed (to be determined by specialists)
   

 

Treatment of Stroke

Stroke is largely preventable, and much has been done to fight the effects of stroke.

 

Tissue plasminogen activator (tPA)

tPA can stop a stroke in progress and reduce disability from stroke by breaking up a blood clot that might be blocking the flow of blood to the brain. However, the treatment is only effective for strokes caused by clots and must be administered within 3 to 4.5 hours after symptoms start. The sooner tPA is given, the greater the possibility of a better outcome after stroke.

 

Endovascular Intervention

Depending on the patient’s condition, certain large blood clots, such as those occluding the cerebral blood vessels, can be removed with microcatheters and retrievers via an endovascular procedure. The procedure should be done within six to eight hours of symptom onset to restore cerebral blood flow and neurological function.
