CHARLES WEINSTEIN/NEUROLOGIST "When he arrived, he was paralyzed on one side and was showing signs of an acute stroke."
AT SAINT LUKE'S HOSPITAL IN KANSAS CITY, DOCTORS HELPED JOHN WITH A TINY EXPERIMENTAL STROKE DEVICE CALLED THE MERCI RETRIEVER.

SOT - JOHN "He said you're havin' a stroke, I said no I aint, I'm too

young to have a stroke."
DOCTOR NAVEED AKHTAR PERFORMED THE TREATMENT BY INSERTING THE DEVICE INTO JOHN'S GROIN, THEN THREADING THE WIRE THROUGH THE ARTERY, UP TO THE BLOCKAGE IN THE BRAIN. (then it can grab the stroke causing blood clot)

nats..doc shows retriever - "It's only 3mm in size, as it comes out of the micro-catheter it regains its shape, so it can trap and remove the clot."

BUT NATIONWIDE, THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO RECEIVE ACUTE TREATMENT IS VERY SMALL..AROUND 2 PERCENT. WITH AN ESTIMATED 700-THOUSAND AMERICANS SUFFERING STROKES EACH YEAR -- MOST HOSPITALS AREN'T GEARED UP TO MOVE QUICKLY ENOUGH.
