Types of Hemorrhagic Stroke
Despite advances in stroke victim care, these cerebral disturbances are still one of the leading causes of death in the United States. One type of stroke is hemorrhagic in nature, meaning that it occurs when a blood vessel breaks and bleeds into the brain. There are two main forms of hemorrhagic stroke based on the location of the bleeding.
Unfortunately, there are many things that can cause a stroke, including oral contraceptives. The birth control pills YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella have been linked to hypertension and other health problems that can lead to hemorrhagic stroke. If you or someone you love has suffered a stroke after taking YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, please contact a YAZ lawsuit attorney from Williams Kherkher today at 800-761-3187 for more information on your legal rights and options.
An intracerebral hemorrhage occurs when a blood vessel bursts inside the brain itself. The pressure of the spilling blood can cause nearby brain tissue to die within four minutes. This makes intracerebral hemorrhagic strokes one of the most deadly forms of stroke.
Although tumors and other problems can increase your risk of hemorrhagic stroke, the primary cause of this problem is hypertension, or high blood pressure. Unfortunately, the hormones in oral contraceptives can increase your blood pressure, putting you in danger of intracerebral hemorrhages.
A subarachnoid hemorrhage happens when there is bleeding between the layers covering the brain, not inside the actual brain tissue. These strokes are actually more common among women than men, and they can affect your language capacity, movement, and sensations. Although subarachnoid hemorrhagic strokes can be the result of injury, they can also be caused by aneurysms.
Even if a person survives a stroke, they can be left with permanent cognitive damage and loss of movement. If you believe that your stroke is the result of YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, the pharmaceutical company responsible for this dangerous drug may be obligated to help you with medical bills, physical therapy costs, and other expenses.
