Doctors at UW Hospital save two patients with one surgery
WISC – Madison, WI 
“A young woman who is 16 weeks pregnant who may be having a stroke and that immediately is a little bit scarier than a lot of the other calls that we get,” Bradbury said. While strokes have occurred in pregnant women before there is not a lot of research available for doctors to rely upon for guidance in treatment. Bradbury made the decision to administer tPA, a clot-busting drug, to Jenny and have her transported immediately to UW Hospital in Madison.
