Brain stroke (Cerebro vascular accident)

What is brain stroke (Crebro vascular accident)


Brain Stroke (Cerebro Vascular accident) is a medical emergency condition that occurs when blood circulation to the brain is interrupted or reduced, leading to damage to brain cells and tissue. It is a prominent cause of disability or death worldwide. Understanding the causes, signs, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options, including physiotherapy, is crucial in managing stroke effectively.

Causes of Stroke:

There are two main types of stroke ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic stroke. Ischemic stroke occurs when a blood vessel supplying blood to the brain is  dammed,  generally due to a blood clot.

 Hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a weakened blood vessel ruptures and bleeds into the  girding brain towel.   threat factors for stroke include high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes,  rotundity, high cholesterol, and a sedentary  life. Other  threat factors include age, family history of stroke, and certain medical conditions  similar as atrial fibrillation and carotid  roadway  complaint.

Signs and Symptoms:

The signs and symptoms of stroke can vary depending on the type of stroke and the area of the brain affected. Common symptoms include sudden weakness or numbness on one side of the body, difficulty speaking or understanding speech, confusion, trouble seeing in one or both eyes, dizziness, and severe headache.

It is essential to recognize these symptoms and seek immediate medical attention as early intervention can significantly improve outcomes.

Investigations and Blood Checkup:

When a patient presents with symptoms suggestive of stroke, a thorough medical evaluation is necessary. This may include a physical examination, neurological assessment, imaging tests such as CT scan or MRI, and blood tests to assess clotting function, cholesterol levels, and other relevant parameters.


The diagnosis of stroke is based on clinical evaluation, imaging studies, and laboratory tests. Imaging tests such as CT scan or MRI can help identify the type and location of the stroke, while blood tests can rule out other conditions that may mimic stroke symptoms.


Preventing stroke involves managing risk factors such as controlling blood pressure, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly, quitting smoking, and managing underlying medical conditions such as diabetes and high cholesterol. It is essential to follow a healthy lifestyle and adhere to prescribed medications to reduce the risk of stroke.


Treatment for stroke depends on the type, severity, and timing of the stroke. In ischemic stroke, the goal is to restore blood flow to the brain quickly. This may involve administering clot-busting medications such as tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) or performing a mechanical thrombectomy to remove the clot surgically.

In hemorrhagic stroke, the focus is on controlling bleeding and reducing pressure on the brain. This may require surgery to repair the damaged blood vessel or remove excess blood from the brain.
