Can you tell me about ischemic/hemorrhagic stroke?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Bennett Werner
43 years experience in Cardiology
Stroke: There are 3 major types of stroke: ischemic (meaning loss of circulation) in which an artery supplying the brain becomes blocked (occluded), hemorrhagic (in which a blood vessel bursts and there is free bleeding into the space between the brain and skull (subarachnoid hemorrhoid) or into the brain itself), and embolic (in which a clot drifts downstream in an artery and becomes lodged in the brain)
