"University of Jordan Hospital" gives new hope to stroke patients

Is a quality procedure for patients with stroke to alter the artery of the head skin and connect it to a brain artery that feeds the affected brain area.

 
Dr. Tarek Kanaan, Head of Neurology and Neurosurgery at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Jordan, explained that this process aims to improve the blood circulation in the brain, which feeds on arteries that are narrowed or clogged, leading to a reduction in the incidence of future brain clots and increasing the possibility of improvement in some cases .
 
"This process, the first of its kind in Jordan, has been adopted in Germany for nearly five years after conducting the required studies and trials. It is currently a routine surgical procedure in many advanced medical centers.
