CARE Hospitals work round the clock to offer the best treatment for brain stroke. A brain stroke happens when there is a blockage of blood vessels that start bleeding. This either reduces or interrupts the bloody supply to the brain. If this occurs, then the brain does not get proper oxygen or nutrients due to which brain cells begin to die.
The stroke impacts the blood vessels that provide oxygen to the brain. If the brain is unable to receive ample nutrients or oxygen, then the damage may begin to happen. It is true that brain strokes are treatable but if not treated on time then these can result in death or permanent disability. Let's learn more about brain strokes with the help of CARE Hospitals:-
Types of brain strokes treated by our specialists
Brain strokes happen when blood clots form in the brain and lead to brain hemorrhage. This may also damage brain tissues and result in disabilities and physical imbalances. We offer the best medical help for the following brain strokes:-
Ischemic stroke - Brain ischemia or ischemic stroke accounts for around 80% of all stroke attacks. This is caused by blood clots in the brain as blood supply has been hindered and brain tissues of a specific area are damaged. The main reason for ischemic stroke is fatty acid deposits that are called atherosclerosis. The deposits are of two types:
Blood clots or cerebral embolisms form in the heart's circulatory system and large arteries near your upper neck or chest portion.
Due to ischemic stroke symptoms, a patient faces physical imbalance, blurry vision, and inability in food consumption.
Hemorrhagic stroke - Around 15% of all the cases of strokes are hemorrhagic stroke. The main cause of this stroke is weakened vessels that lead to enhanced bleeding in the brain. Further, there is blood accumulation and brain tissues start damaging. Hemorrhagic stroke is of two types:-
The reason behind most of the hemorrhage is arteriovenous malformation. This is an abnormal blood clot formation that causes bleeding in the brain.
Cryptogenic stroke - This stroke is a stroke that is caused by unknown factors that are hard to be determined. However, the cause of all of such strokes is usually due to brain clot formation. For this, our specialists may also recommend acute diagnosis to fight against the health risk timely.
Transient ischemic attack (TIA) - TIA i.e. transient ischemic attack is called a TIA mini-stroke. This is a condition when the temporary blockage is there in brain blood flow. Some people ignore it at the initial level as it is known for not causing permanent damage but we do not advise such an act. If blood clots have started forming, then this is an indication of a transient ischemic attack. We advise patients to get it diagnosed as well as treated at the initial level. They should not miss an opportunity to prevent it timely.
Silent Brain Stroke or Silent Cerebral Infarction - This stroke is caused by blood clot formation and blocks the blood flow to the brain. This may be responsible for silent brain stroke even without your awareness. The high-risk factor associated with it is that it might lead to a further case of brain damage. The prime silent brain stroke causes are:
Atrial fibrillation leads to irregular heart beating among patients above 65 age.
Elevated blood levels, hypertension, and higher systolic blood pressure levels are the known silent infarction or SCI causes.
Considering the importance, we conduct diagnosis for prevention of risk of brain damage.
Prevention that we suggest before treatment
When the patient comes to us, we also suggest a few preventions along with diagnosis and treatments, including:
Moderate weight management
Follow a healthy diet chart
Stay away from alcohol or tobacco
Diet should comprise plenty of vegetables, seeds, legumes, nuts, whole grains, and fruits.
A few other measures suggested by us:
Control on blood pressure
Regular treatment for heart disease
Diagnosis conducted by CARE Hospitals experts
First, our doctors conduct a physical examination and enquire about the patient's symptoms and his medical history. We check reflexes, strength, coordination, vision, and sensation. Our doctors check blood vessels at the back of the eyes, blood pressure, and listen to carotid arteries of the neck.
Our doctors also conduct blood examinations to determine whether there is a high risk of blood clots or bleeding. Levels of specific substances in the blood are measured, including clotting factors and infection.
Multiple X-rays in the form of CT scans are done to know the condition of tumors, strokes, and hemorrhages in the brain. MRI scan is also done to create brain images for detecting damaged brain tissues.
Our treatment approach for brain stroke
The prime approach that we embrace to treat brain stroke is to act as fast as possible. Ischemic stroke is treated the best when it is treated within the six hours of cerebral attack onset.
CARE Hospitals provide the following treatment options, such as:
Rehabilitation is an aspect of stroke care as most stroke patients require rehabilitation after the stroke. It also depends on the area of brain stroke and the number of tissues damaged. Our therapies include occupational therapy, physiotherapy, dysphagia therapy, cognitive therapy, speech therapy, recreational therapy, continent advisor, etc.
Our rehabilitation and physiotherapy staff and doctors specialize not only in treating strokes but they also help them regain their confidence. For the best treatment, we are equipped with the advanced technologies such as stereotaxy, neuronavigation system, intraoperative CT, microscopic surgery, etc. Our prime aim is to provide proper medical help and care with utmost attention by resisting a brain stroke in the future. So, are you seeking the best medical care to manage your brain stroke, then approach CARE Hospitals for the best services and treatment.
