Treatment of Strokes

How the Stoke can be Treated?

Hemorrhagic stroke:

It’s treatment includes efforts to control bleeding, reduce pressure in the brain, and stabilize blood pressure.

  • To stop the bleeding, you may be given medicine or a transfusion of parts of blood, such as plasma.
  • You will be closely examined for the signs of increased pressure on the brain. These signs include restlessness, confusion, and headache. Other measures will be taken to keep you from straining from excessive coughing or lifting, or straining to pass stool.
  • If the bleeding is due to a ruptured brain aneurysm, surgery to repair the aneurysm may be done.
  • In some cases, medicines may be given to control blood pressure.
  • If a large amount of bleeding has occurred and symptoms are quickly getting worse, you may need to remove the blood that has built up inside the brain.

Ischemic stroke:

Measures will be taken to stabilize your signs, including taking medicines.

  • If your stroke is diagnosed soon enough after the start of symptoms, you may be given a clot-dissolving medicine which can increase your chances of recovery.
  • You may also receive aspirin or another medicine.
  • In some cases, a procedure may be done to restore blood flow.

The doctor uses a thin, flexible tube and a tiny cage to remove the blood clot that caused the stroke.
