In brief: Depends

Stokes and heart attacks can vary quite a bit in severity which may mean a lot in predicting what will happen.
The long term treatments can be very similar. The short term treatments maybe different. The doctors taking care of the patient will have the best understanding of the priorities in treatment and can better describe what you can expect.

In brief: Treat each one

The history of a stroke may preclude the use of thrombolytics, but should not interfere with medical therapy or stent placement.
