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.
- 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 .
