What's the difference between ischemic stroke, hemorrhagic stroke, and embolic stroke?

What's the difference between ischemic stroke, hemorrhagic stroke, and embolic stroke?

Pathophysiology: Ischemic stroke occurs when an artery to the brain is blocked.A thrombotic stroke occurs when diseased or damaged cerebral arteries become blocked by the formation of a blood clot within the brain. An embolic stroke is also caused by a clot within an artery, but in this case the clot (or emboli) forms somewhere other than in the brain itself. Hemorrhagic stroke is sudden bleed into the brain. ...Read more

4 doctors agreed:
How are hemophilia, myocardial infarction(heart attack), and stroke related to blood clotting?

Opposites: Hemophilia is a defect of blood coagulation such that the blood does not clot. Heart attacks and strokes are a result of clots forming in the arteries feeding the heart and brain respectively. These latter clots can be formed locally due to damage to the blood vessels or an increased clotting tendency, or from clots that embolize from somewhere else in the body. ...Read more

Which is better for strokes: plavix (clopidogrel) or aggrenox?

Which is better for strokes: plavix (clopidogrel) or aggrenox?

Depends: Studies have been done comparing the two. Aggrenox seems superior in preventing recurrent stroke or tia's, but Plavix (clopidogrel) has more research on heart disease and periph vasc problems.
