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?

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)
