(9NEWS) Tweet Facebook Mail A 21-year-old medical student whose girlfriend noticed his stroke symptoms has been able to walk free from hospital in just a matter of days, thanks to a ground-breaking treatment. Melbourne man Perry Lin was talking to his girlfriend in Taiwan on FaceTime when she noticed something wasn’t right.“She mentioned my face was drooping and that I was speaking funny,” Mr Lin told 9NEWS.“I was really confused at the time, and didn’t know what was going on and kept telling her I was fine.”He was rushed to the Royal Melbourne Hospital where doctors performed the ground-breaking endovascular clot-retrieval process, allowing Mr Lin to leave hospital after just three days.Professor Rick Dowling from the Royal Melbourne Hospital said developing technology has greatly improved the procedure over the last seven years.“Essentially what we do is pass a very, very fine tube beyond the clot and deploy a wire mesh tube and basically drag it out and it drags the clot with it,” he said.RelatedRush to publish COVID-19 research saw errors in top medical journals triple, study findsNew health alert in South Australia after positive COVID-19 case breached quarantineTwo new coronavirus cases reported in South Australia“We restored blood flow to the side of his brain that was threatened, and three days later he left hospital walking, talking and normal.”Professor Dowling said were it not for the swift response, Mr Lin could have been left severely disabled.“It was a very satisfying outcome for him and for us. He could have had a severe weakness on one side of his body, and his speech could have been affected permanently. It would’ve been a life-changing event for him,” he said.Health professionals say the treatment’s effectiveness is increased when symptoms are picked up rapidly.“Timing is everything,” Professor Dowling said.Professor Rick Dowling (left) with Perry Lin. (9NEWS)With around 50,000 Australians suffering a stroke every year, as part of National Stroke Week experts are urging Australians to familiarise themselves with recognising the symptoms to maximise sufferers survival rates.Scott Stirling from the Stroke Foundation said there is still work to be done to ensure everyone knows how to recognise symptoms, with Mr Lin’s story an example of those who have been educated.“Unfortunately it is not the norm, too many people can’t recognise one,” he said.“We talk about the FAST test… Every minute counts. Within just a couple of hours, you can get lifesaving treatment.”See below for the Stroke Foundation’s F.A.S.T stroke symptoms method:F- FACE: Check their face. Has their mouth drooped?A- ARMS: Can they lift both arms?S- SPEECH: Is their speech slurred? Do they understand you?T- TIME: Time is critical. If you see any of these signs, call triple zero (000) immediately.
