Ischemia Stroke

Ischemic stroke occurs when an artery to the brain is blocked.  The brain depends on its arteries to bring fresh blood from the heart and lungs. The blood carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain, and takes away carbon dioxide and cellular waste. If an artery is blocked, the brain cells cannot make enough energy and will eventually stop working. If the artery remains blocked for more than a few minutes, the brain cells may die. Ischemic stroke can be caused by several different kinds of diseases. The most common problem is narrowing of the arteries in the neck or head. This is most often caused by atherosclerosis, or gradual cholesterol deposition. It is mostly observed in women and children.

A multiple stroke means several small (lacunar) strokes happen in a short time on both sides of your brain, you may feel weakness or loss of feeling on either side of your body. Stroke in children occurs in three different age groups the prenatal phase, or in the womb, the newborn phase of first 28 days and from infants to 18 years age. Strokes in Women are the third leading cause of death for women. Each year 55,000 more women have a stroke than men.  Stroke medical treatments work to either open the blockage or treat the rupture.  In the Advanced Stroke and Neurovascular Program, neuro-interventional specialists use non-invasive interventional techniques to treat brain aneurysms, open blocked arteries in the brain and remove clots in brain arteries.   Prevent stroke happening to you or others by following these guidelines: Identify, reduced your risk factors, Recognize and respond
