Dr. Daniel Guisado, researcher of the Cerebral Vascular Disease Research Group at the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau Research Institute – IIB Sant Pau, and assistant doctor at the Neurology Service of the Hospital de Sant Pau will be giving the conference “The shortcuts of blood” next Tuesday 18 February, from 6.30 p.m. to 7.30 p.m. This session is part of the “Science and Medical Research” cycle of talks at the Navas Civic Centre. Admission is free.
When a stroke occurs due to a blockage of an important artery in the brain, treatments must be carried out as quickly as possible to try to resolve the blockage with the least possible brain damage. These treatments are possible thanks to the fact that a minimum amount of blood manages to reach the neurons that are suffering (and keep them hibernating but alive) through small paths that open up with this objective: the shortcuts of the blood.
