Overall treatment rates for acute ischemic rates remain low in the United States with approximately 11 percent of all strokes receiving thrombolytic treatment.  JFKUMC continues to maintain and achieve higher treatment rates in comparison to the national rates for Joint Commission CSC facilities.  Another treatment option for acute ischemic strokes is utilizing mechanical thrombectomy.  JFKUMC’s endovascular reperfusion rate utilizing mechanical thrombectomy was 80 percent for 2020.

Stroke Prevention

Strokes often occur as the result of a blockage in one of the carotid arteries.  In order to prevent a stroke caused by a blocked artery, patients may undergo a procedure to remove the blockage either by carotid artery stenting or carotid endarterectomy.  JFKUMC complication rates are superior to the national benchmarks.
