What Is the Difference Between Ischemic Stroke and a Hemorrhagic Stroke?
– 80% of strokes are ischemic. It’s due to a blockage
in the blood vessel, commonly due to arteriosclerosis or cholesterol deposition
in the blood vessel that leads to closure of the blood vessel so the cells that it is profusing
gets abruptly disrupted, and that results in a stroke
called ischemic stroke. Hemorrhagic stroke is due to
rupture of the blood vessel, or it can be due to an aneurism
that ruptures and bleeds. So those are the two common strokes.
