Knowledge of Types,Risk Factors and Warning Signs Of Stroke

Types of Strokes

Many people think of a stroke as one kind of medical emergency, but there are actually three different types of stroke:

1. Hemorrhagic Stroke

Hemorrhagic strokes occur when a weakened blood vessel ruptures and bleeds into the rest of the brain. This causes a compression of the brain tissue when the blood accumulates. It’s the second most common kind of stroke.There are two classifications of weakened blood vessels that will lead to a hemorrhagic stroke:

  • Aneurysm. Swelling of a weak region of a blood vessel. This will continue to deteriorate until it ruptures.
  • Arteriovenous malformation. A region of blood vessels that are formed abnormally. These abnormal blood vessels can rupture and bleed out into the brain.
