About the research
During a stroke, every second counts to save as many brain cells as possible. Intervention is only possible within a narrow time window of a few hours because late treatment can lead to serious complications. Is there nothing more we can do for such 'late' patients? There is, says neurologist trainee Lauranne Scheldeman (KU Leuven-VIB / FWO). In her research, she is also trying to help these patients: "Even if they arrive too late, some of them will still benefit from treatment."
