Brain bleeding: This a cva or stroke caused by bleeding in the brain.
Dr. Bennett Machanic

Primary or secondary: Bleeding can occur initially when a blood vessel bursts, and may be associated with a pseudo charcot-bouchard aneurysm caused by uncontrolled hypertension. An area of thrombosis or embolism can cause damage to the local tissue and blood vessel wall and bleed secondarily. All are generically termed a hemorrhagic stroke.

After hemorrhagic stroke what are the chances of surviving?

NOT GREAT: If subarachnoid hemorrhage from aneurysm, about 50% die within the first few days in hospital. If intracranial bleed, with/without stroke, the death rate within year one approaches 60%. Figures have remained constant for years. A generic suggestion, control blood pressure diligently.

Can you tell me about ischemic/hemorrhagic stroke?

Dr. Bennett Werner
Cardiology 44 years experience
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)
