Persons who suffer strokes will have bigger chances of recovery

For the first time in Moldova, the persons who suffer a cerebrovascular accident could undergo minimally invasive surgery to have the clots removed from cerebral veins. The first surgery of the kind was performed on a woman aged 63 on September 29 this year. The woman is now recovering, IPN reports.

Academician Stanislav Groppa said the opening of the Angiography and Vascular Surgery Department was possible owing to a project that was launched several years ago. This envisioned the provision of medical equipment and training of doctors abroad.

“It is very important to understand that the brain during the first hours of a vascular accident is viable and early intervention maximally reduces the consequences caused by the stroke. The neurovascular surgery is now the most efficient medical method and this ensures bigger chances of recovery,” stated the doctor.

Boris Gîlca, secretary of state at the Ministry of Health, Labor and Social Protection, said the strokes are the leading cause of disability and the third leading cause of death. “It is very important to react promptly in the case of cerebrovascular accidents. An operation should be performed during the first six hours of the stroke,” he stated, noting more neurovascular emergency centers will be created in regions together with the implementation of the hospital reform.

Though the Japan International Cooperation Agency, Japan offered Moldova preferential loans totaling US$ 55 million for modernizing the medical system. Japan’s Ambassador to Moldova Masanobu Yoshii said the improvement of the medical system in Moldova is a priority for his country.

According to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Social Protection, about 12,000 people suffer a stroke in Moldova annually. Half of them do not survive.
