Fast, Effective Stroke Treatment
Stroke is one of the leading causes of serious, long-term disability. Skåne University Hospital’s stroke unit is one of Sweden’s leading academic stroke centres, with over 70 active researchers and two full-time stroke professors. We treat 1,400 patients per year in Malmö and Lund and provide a full range of services including primary, secondary and tertiary care.
Malmö offers among the fastest stroke care in the world. Clot-dissolving treatment is usually administered in under ten minutes after arrival at the hospital, which is well under Swedish guidelines. Our unique, fast-track solution is built on a multidisciplinary collaboration between the emergency ward, radiology and neurology departments and ambulance staff.
A study carried out by Skåne University Hospital in collaboration with Lund University concluded that a patient undergoing a thrombectomy requires less long-term care and support than one being treated with thrombolysis, saving around SEK 500,000 per patient. It also offers a higher chance of survival and reduced risk of damage and complications, while saving the hospital time and money due to better organisation and collaboration.
