More About Strokes
A stroke is a cerebral vascular condition that occurs when blood to the brain is blocked or there is bleeding in the brain. These conditions can lead to a lack of oxygen to the brain, killing cells and possibly causing brain damage. A stroke is a medical emergency that requires immediate treatment.
Women tend to have more strokes than men. This is because their life expectancy is longer, and the incidence of strokes is higher at older ages. But no matter who you are, improving your overall health by exercising, losing weight and lowering your blood pressure may reduce your risk of stroke.
We treat many types of stroke, including:
- Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH)
- Ischemic stroke
- Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH)
- Transient ischemic attack (TIA)
Testing and Diagnostics
Your multidisciplinary neurological team will use the most advanced methods to diagnose your stroke. These may include one or more of the following:
- Blood test
- Carotid ultrasound
- Computerized tomography angiogram (CTA)
- CT imaging
- Electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG)
