Brain Stroke Treatment

Helping you beat Stroke & its Complications within & after the Golden Hour

Brain Stroke Treatment Centre

A Stroke is a medical emergency caused due to the interruption of blood flow. The cells present in the brain stop functioning. In this situation, it also impacts the body’s movements, especially parts that are controlled by the specific portion of the brain. The recovery of the patient is dependent on the severity of the stroke.
With state-of-the-art facilities like CT & MRI, which are available 24×7 in the Emergency Department and a dedicated Stroke ICU, our experienced & trained team offer Advanced Neurological Care & a Door to Needle time of only 15 minutes.

Types of Brain Stroke

1. Ischemic stroke : It is the most common which occurs when the blood arteries in the brain become restricted or clogged, resulting in substantially decreased blood flow (ischemia). Blood clots or other debris that move through the circulation, most typically from the heart, and lodge in blood vessels in the brain produce blocked or restricted blood arteries.

2. Hemorrhagic stroke : When a blood vessel in the brain leaks or ruptures, it causes a hemorrhagic stroke. Many disorders that alter blood arteries can cause brain hemorrhages. The following are risk factors for hemorrhagic stroke:

  • Uncontrolled blood pressure.
  • Excessive use of blood thinners.
  • Bulges at vulnerable points in blood vessel walls.
  • Trauma
  • Protein deposits in blood vessel walls cause vessel wall weakening.
  • Ischemic stroke with hemorrhage .
  • The rupture of an irregular tangle of thin-walled blood arteries is a less prevalent cause of brain hemorrhage .

Conditions that can lead to Brain Stroke

Age plays a crucial role, people over the age of 55 are at higher risk, especially men. Women who take birth control pills are also at higher risk.

Lifestyle Risk Includes

  • Excess weight or obesity
  • No physical activity
  • Excess Drinking
  • Use of drugs

Medical Risk Includes

  • High Blood Pressure
  • Smoking
  • High Cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Family History
  • Heart Attack
  • Previous History of Stroke

Symptoms of Brain Stroke

  • Difficulties communicating and understanding may result in a condition of confusion.
  • Numbness, weakness, or paralysis of the face, arm, or leg (usually only affects one side of the body).
  • Problem with eyesight,(in one or both eyes), hazy or darkened vision, or, in certain cases, double vision.
  • Severe headache which could be followed by vomiting.
  • Disorientation or altered consciousness.
  • Walking or standing difficulties.
If you observe any signs or symptoms of a stroke, even if they appear to come and go seek medical attention. In some cases stroke symptoms might be slow and noticeable at this time use the “FAST” technique and complete the following tasks:
Face : Request that the individual smile. If their smile is drooping at one side of the face.

Arms : Request that the person to raise their arms. Notice if one of the arms droops or is incapable of rising.

Speech : Request that the person repeat a short phrase and if you notice that their voice is being slurred or unusual.

Time : If you see any of these symptoms, immediately visit the hospital for medical assistance.

Causes of Brain Stroke

There are two basic causes of stroke: a clogged artery (ischemic stroke) or a blood vessel leaking or bursting (hemorrhagic stroke). Some patients may experience only a brief disturbance in blood flow to the brain, known as a transient ischemic attack (TIA), which may not result in long-term symptoms.

Brain Stroke Treatment

Immediate medical attention is required. New therapies are only effective if administered within a few hours of the onset of a stroke. A clot-busting medicine, for example, must be administered within four and half hours.
The therapy is decided when the doctor has completed the diagnostic testing. The goal for all stroke victims is to avoid future brain damage. If the stroke is caused by a blockage in the blood flow to the brain, therapeutic options may include:
  • T P A (tissue plasminogen activator), is a clot-busting medication administered within three hours after the onset of a non-bleeding stroke.
  • Anticoagulants and antiplatelet medications that thin the blood; a combination of aspirin and prolonged release dipyridamole.
  • Surgery to open the insides of restricted blood arteries in the neck .
  • Medicines that keep blood clotting normal.
  • Surgery to drain brain blood or reduce pressure on the brain.
  • The damaged blood vessels were repaired surgically.
  • Inserting a coil to close off bleeding vessels.
  • Drugs that reduce or eliminate brain edema.
  • To reduce pressure, a tube is inserted into a hollow part of the brain.
