Acute Ischemic Stroke

A stroke is a medical condition which causes cell death due to poor blood flow to the brain. There are two main types of stroke: ischemic due to lack of blood supply, and bleeding due to hemorrhagic. All cause brain parts to cease proper functioning. Symptoms and symptoms of a stroke can include an inability to move or respond on one side of the body, comprehension or speech difficulties, dizziness or vision loss on one side. Signs and symptoms frequently arise shortly after the stroke occurs. The stroke is a transient ischemic attack (TIA), also called a mini-stroke, if the symptoms last longer than one to two hours. A serious headache can also induce a hemorrhagic stroke. Stroke symptoms may be lifelong. High blood pressure is the principal risk factor for stroke. Tobacco smoking, obesity, elevated blood cholesterol, diabetes mellitus, a previous TIA, end-stage kidney disease and atrial fibrillation are other risk factors. A blockage of a blood vessel usually causes an ischemic stroke, but there are also less common causes.
