- Endovascular clot evacuation

Jane, who was 33 weeks pregnant, had a stroke and was taken to the hospital. Archer wanted to do an endovascular clot evacuation, but Addison pushed him to do a less risky tissue plasminogen activator. Archer ultimately did it his way. During the procedure, Jane started having contractions. Addison pushed terbutaline to stop the contractions and Archer continued. He captured the clot and extracted it. She was stable after the procedure, but they had to wait to see how much good it did. Jane later went into active later and Addison had to do a c-section. Because she was still on blood thinners from her first surgery, Addison consulted with Archer because she'd have to reverse them to do the c-section. They decided to do the c-secion with a spinal block while Archer monitored with an EEG. The baby was delivered successfully and Jane had good motor function and was able to speak afterward.
