New treatment to lower risk of stroke
(08-12 17:36)

A study by the Chinese University of Hong Kong has found that nose and throat cancer patients, who have received radiotherapy, have a higher risk of stroke about 10 years after the treatment.
Researchers said on Tuesday that radiotherapy was effective in curing nose and throat cancer but narrowed the blood vessels in the neck.
However, a new treatment involving the insertion of a small mesh to open up the narrowed arteries could reduce the stroke risk. --RTHK
