Chittagong Medical College Hospital (CMCH) has launched a specialized unit for the treatment of stroke patients.

The unit was inaugurated at 11am on Tuesday in a special ceremony in the conference room of the hospital's Neurology Department, reports Bangla Tribune.

CMCH Director Brig Gen SM Humayun Kabir inaugurated the Wahidur Rahman Memorial Stroke Unit. 

The specialized unit has been named after a former doctor of the Neurology Department who was killed in a recent road accident.

The CMCH director said the patients of Chittagong will get state-of-the-art treatment at the specialized stroke unit.

This is the second such specialized treatment unit for stroke patients in Bangladesh. The first of its kind was set up at the National Institute of Neurosciences and Hospital at Agargaon in Dhaka.

Medicine and Neuromedicine specialist, Prof Hasanuzzaman of CMCH, said the main purpose of setting up the stroke unit was to provide medical services to the patients in a very short time.

“Patients would be provided a specialized treatment through thrombolytic therapy. This therapy will prevent paralysis of the stroke patient's arms and legs. Therapy is a service that has a very limited delivery time. If we can provide this service within four-and-a-half hours of having a stroke, then positive results can be obtained,” he added.

Assistant Professor of the Neurology Department Farhana Moslehuddin presented a scientific paper at the event. “Advanced thrombolysis treatment through the stroke unit will greatly reduce stroke mortality and physical disability,” she said.

Assistant Professor of Neurology Mahbubul Alam Khandaker, Chittagong Medical College Principal Prof Sahena Akhter, Professor of Medicine MA Hasan Chowdhury, Head of the Department of Radiology Subhash Majumdar, Head of Neurosurgery Department Professor SM Noman Khaled Chowdhury, Head of the Department of Physical Medicine Shawkat Hossain, among others, addressed the event.
