Strokes maybe?: You may be referring to thrombotic and hemorrhagic strokes. Thrombotic or embolic means from a clot. These strokes most often happen when someone has a blood clot in the heart, and it breaks off and goes to the blood vessels in the brain. Usually from a heart rhythm called Atrial fibrillation. Hemorrhagic means caused by bleeding, a blood vessel breaks and bleeds into the brain. Both bad.
