In brief: Based on situation

If an aneurysm or ateriovenous malformation has caused problem, surgical repair may be life saving.
If a subdural or epidural hemorrhage, best to decompress unless very small and stable. If intracranial bleeding, may be far safer to be conservative, and not operate. But all situations are different and management decisions should vary.

In brief: Sometimes

Many times embolic strokes are treated with blood thinner which can open up blocked arteries.
For most patients surgery is rarely done.
