Posted on April 6, 2017

Reuters on April 5 featured Dr. Reza Jahan, a professor in the division of interventional neuroradiology, in a story about a study confirming that stroke patients recover better if doctors physically remove a clot from a blocked artery instead of only using the clot-busting drug tPA. Med Page Today on April 5 also covered the study, quoting Dr. David Liebeskind, associate director of the UCLA Stroke Program. The Reuters story also appeared in the Scientific American.
