Dr. Nichols Interviewed on Stroke Guidelines

Big changes to the guidelines for treating strokes means more patients will be eligible for a clot removal procedure.  In the past doctors only considered that procedure 6 to 8 hours after the onset of symptoms.  Now they will consider the surgery 24 hours out.

“I think it’s going to end up being a pretty large change,” said Dr. Christopher Nichols at Littleton Adventist Hospital.
