As a products liability and medical malpractice attorney, I am intrigued by the new study regarding a new stroke prevention option.
A recent study unleashes promising news finding that “people with narrowed neck arteries that could lead to a stroke can be safely treated with less drastic option” than the current surgical procedure. (AP M.Marchione, 2/26).
Medical professionals assert that hundreds of thousands of Americans could benefit each year because the new artery opening stent, which is a “mesh tube that props the blood vessel open,” will replace the expensive and drastic surgical option.
Although not without complications, the risks both during and after the stent procedure appear to be relatively less drastic than the surgical alternative.
