TYPES OF STROKES
Ischemic Stroke is when a blood clot, likely a fatty deposit, is lodged in a blood vessel. The blood vessels supply blood to the brain.
Hemorrhagic Stroke occurs when a blood vessel ruptures. A blood vessel bursts when the vessel is weakened by high blood pressure and aneurysm.
Transient Ischemic Attack or “Mini-Stroke” is not obvious like Ischemic or Hemorrhagic stroke. The stroke is caused by clots that the natural anticoagulants in the body break down.
