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
- 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.
- 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
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.

Symptoms of Brain Stroke
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:
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:
