Contrary to public opinion, brain stroke is one of the most treatable human ailments, said Babak Zamani, head of Iranian Brain Stroke Association.

However, the most important hours for treatment of the health complication is within the first 2-3 hours after the onset of symptoms, and therefore the existence of well-equipped ambulances and constant presence of physicians in hospitals, helps lower the mortality rate of brain stroke, IRNA quoted him as saying.

Annually, nearly 160,000 people suffer from different types of strokes in Iran. “With the launching of the National Committee for Brain Stroke Treatment by the Health Ministry in mid 2016, the quality of services provided to the patients has improved significantly,” he added.
