Pat Robertson To Make Full Recovery After Embolic Stroke
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – Dr. M.G. “Pat” Robertson is recovering after sustaining an embolic stroke around 12 noon Friday. A family member recognized the onset of symptoms and Dr. Robertson was rushed to the nearest stroke center.
The stroke center consulted with a neurologist/stroke specialist who quickly ordered an MRI to determine the cause of the stroke and the location of the clot. The consulting neurologist and the hospital team administered the clot-busting drug tPA approximately 80 minutes after the onset of symptoms. Within minutes of receiving tPA, Dr. Robertson was awake and responsive and able to move all of his limbs. The neurologist declared the rapid recovery to be a “tPA miracle.”
