Types of Stroke

Strokes can cause extensive brain damage within four or five minutes. The damage comes from a disruption of blood flow to the brain, whether it is a result of a blocked artery or a burst blood vessel. There are several different types of stroke that can all cause brain damage and even death.

While you can take certain steps to prevent stroke, such a healthy diet and regular exercise, sometimes a stroke can hit you without any warning. Some medications, such as the oral contraceptive YAZ, have been linked to an increased risk of stroke. If you have suffered from a stroke after taking YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, you should contact an experienced YAZ lawsuit attorney from Williams Hart today at 800-761-3187.

Strokes from Ruptured Blood Vessels

There are two kinds of stroke that result from ruptured blood vessels. First, intracerebral hemorrhages occur when a blood vessel inside the brain tissue bursts. Not only does this disrupt the important flow of blood to brain tissue, but the excess blood can place pressure on the delicate neurons of the brain. This can cause the tissue to die.

Secondly, subarachnoid hemorrhages occur when an artery near the brain ruptures. With this type of stroke, the direction of the blood flow causes the excess blood to fill up the area surrounding the brain.

Blocked Arteries in the Brain

Additionally, one type of stroke results from a blocked artery rather than a broken blood vessel. Ischemic strokes are the most common form of stroke, affecting about 80% of all stroke victims. With ischemic strokes, a clot or blockage forms in an artery leading to the brain. This prevents the brain from receiving essential oxygen and nutrients, which can quickly kill important tissue.
