Abstract

The treatment options and management of ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke are expanding. Neuroradiologic interventions are being used in acute care settings to change the course of these devastating processes. These interventions include the injection of intra-arterial urokinase for ischemic stroke, use of coils to secure aneurysms, and balloon angioplasty for increasing the lumen of spastic cerebral arteries in patients with cerebral vasospasm. Using a case study approach, these three options for managing stroke patients will be integrated, and nursing strategies for delivering care to the stroke patient will be profiled.
