Our Stroke Outcomes

Outcome measures are the most important barometers of health care performance. Simply put, “outcomes” are the results of care received by our patients. For instance, did the patient survive their procedure or treatments? Were they satisfied with their care? Were there any complications as a result of their care?

Outcomes reflect the ability of UT Southwestern Medical Center – or any other health care system – to produce the results that patients and health care providers expect.

We invite you to view UT Southwestern’s outcomes performance related to stroke:

  • Over the last year, zero percent of our patients experienced bleeding in the brain after receiving IVtPA for acute ischemic stroke.
  • 97.4 percent of our patients had no complications after having a carotid endarterectomy or stenting procedure.
  • 60 percent of our patients have been noted to be neurologically normal 90 days after having a stroke.
  • In the last decade, we've treated more than 3,000 patients who have experienced an aneurysm.
  • Approximately 97 percent of our patients treated for aneurysms in 2013 had no complication related to their surgical procedure.
