Advanced Stroke Interventional Procedures

At the forefront of stroke care, Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center offers a comprehensive suite of advanced interventions designed to address the complex challenges of stroke management. Our expert interventional team specializes in a range of cutting-edge procedures aimed at restoring blood flow, reducing stroke risk, and improving outcomes for patients facing neurological and vascular conditions. From minimally invasive techniques like atherectomy and stenting to innovative therapies such as targeted temperature management and thrombectomy, we are committed to providing personalized and effective solutions tailored to each patient's unique needs. Discover how our advanced stroke interventions pave the way for enhanced recovery and better quality of life.


Atherectomy is a specialized and minimally invasive procedure designed to remove plaque buildup from blood vessels. This technique is particularly effective in cases where plaque obstructs blood flow or poses a risk of stroke. During an atherectomy, our skilled interventional team utilizes advanced devices to safely clear blockages from arteries, restoring proper blood flow and reducing the risk of vascular complications. Atherectomy plays a crucial role in maintaining cardiovascular health and is part of our comprehensive interventional procedures aimed at optimizing patient outcomes and improving overall wellness.

Stenting and Angioplasty

Stenting and angioplasty are techniques used to treat narrowed or blocked arteries, including those in the neck (carotid arteries) and brain. During angioplasty, a balloon is inflated to widen the narrowed artery, while stenting involves placing a small mesh tube (stent) to keep the artery open. These procedures enhance blood flow, reducing the risk of stroke associated with arterial blockages.

Carotid Stenting

Carotid stenting specifically targets blockages in the carotid arteries, which supply blood to the brain. This procedure involves inserting a stent to widen the narrowed artery, improving blood flow and reducing the risk of stroke caused by carotid artery disease. Our interventional specialists utilize advanced techniques to ensure optimal outcomes for patients undergoing carotid stenting procedures.

Targeted Temperature Management

Targeted Temperature Management (TTM) is a therapeutic intervention used to manage patients who have experienced a stroke or cardiac arrest. By precisely controlling the patient's body temperature, TTM helps mitigate brain damage and improve neurological outcomes. Our medical team is well-versed in implementing TTM protocols to support patients during critical phases of recovery.


Thrombectomy is a highly effective procedure for removing blood clots (thrombi) from blood vessels, particularly in cases of acute ischemic stroke. Using specialized devices, our interventional experts can navigate to the site of the clot and safely extract it, restoring blood flow to the affected area of the brain. This timely intervention is crucial in minimizing stroke-related disability and improving patient outcomes.

We prioritize swift and precise stroke interventions, utilizing cutting-edge technologies and evidence-based practices to deliver exceptional care to our patients. Our multidisciplinary team collaborates seamlessly to ensure optimal outcomes and support patients on their journey to recovery from stroke-related challenges.
