The Second Leap in the Global Vascular Hospital, Sejong Hospital Cerebrovascular Center
Cerebrovascular disease is a disease that comes third in increasing mortality rates, after heart disease and cancer.
Depending on how quickly you arrive at a hospital, and how quickly your arrival at hospital is responded to, the outcome may vary significantly.
Sejong Hospital does not neglect patient treatment due to time delays, given that the first treatment is handled directly by a specialist,
while individual treatments such as medication, intervention, or surgery, are carried out in one step.
Acute Phase Stroke Class 1 Hospital (Health Insurance Evaluation and Assessment Service) – Recognized for Therapeutic Responsiveness
We have six specialists with vast clinical experience in cerebrovascular disease, minimizing brain cell damage, increasing patient survival, reducing complications and
sequelae, and improving the quality of life of patients after treatment.
At Sejong Hospital, treatment will be done immediately upon patient arrival.
Stroke Golden Time 3 Hours
- Sejong Hospital Cerebrovascular Center
- Within 30 minutes: injection of thrombolytic agent
- Within 1 hour: neuroangiography
- Within 2 hours: cerebrovascular surgery
The criterion for the evaluation of intravenous thrombolytic therapy for clogged blood vessels is within one hour, but at the cerebrovascular center of Sejong Hospital, thrombolytic agents are administered approximately 30 minutes after the arrival of a stroke patient.
Operation of stroke intensive care unit
The ‘Intensive Care Unit for Stroke,’ which is operated by a total of 5 beds, is a private hospital for stroke patients and if the condition is stable, the patient is moved to a normal room. The Sejong Hospital Stroke Intensive Care Unit is staffed by a specialist 24 hours a day, who checks the condition of patients frequently to ensure prompt treatment.
Placement of a dedicated nurse for ‘Intensive Care Unit for Stroke’
Along with the operation of the intensive care unit, a dedicated nurse resides to enable 1:1 contact patient care. Immediate and systematic care helps patients better recover after the acute phase.
Hybrid Operating Room - Optimized operating room that does not miss the golden time of the vascular patient
Hybrid vascular surgery is performed for people with vascular disease who have multiple vascular lesions, are at high risk, or who require both surgical and interventional procedures. In situations where a patient's life is directly connected with treatment time, the Hybrid Surgical Method removes the waiting time for intervention and surgical operation for quick and accurate treatment.
