A stroke, often referred to as a “brain attack,” occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is interrupted or severely reduced. This sudden disruption of blood flow can lead to brain cell damage and potentially irreversible complications. Strokes are a medical emergency and require immediate attention to minimize long-term effects.

Stroke Care: Where expertise meets urgency, turning the tide of crisis into the hope of recovery.

Types of Strokes

Strokes can be classified into two main types:

  • Ischemic Stroke: This is the most common type and occurs when a blood clot blocks an artery supplying blood to the brain.

  • Hemorrhagic Stroke: This type results from the rupture of a blood vessel, leading to bleeding within the brain.

Diagnosis of Stroke

Accurate and timely diagnosis is critical for the best possible outcome. Dr. Karthikeyan YR utilizes a combination of diagnostic tools, including:

  • CT Scan: Often the initial imaging tool used to confirm the presence of a stroke and determine the type.

  • MRI: Provides more detailed images to evaluate the extent of damage.

  • Blood Tests: To assess factors like blood sugar levels, clotting time, and other potential underlying causes.

  • Carotid Ultrasound: To assess the carotid arteries for blockages that can lead to stroke.

Treatment of Stroke

The management of stroke involves a time-sensitive approach:

  • Clot-Busting Medications: In the case of an ischemic stroke, intravenous (IV) tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) may be administered to dissolve the clot.

  • Endovascular Procedures: A catheter-based approach may be used to remove clots or deliver medication directly to the affected area.

  • Hemorrhagic Stroke Management: The focus is on controlling bleeding, reducing pressure within the brain, and surgical intervention when necessary.

  • Rehabilitation: Stroke survivors often require physical, occupational, and speech therapy to regain lost functions and adapt to any disabilities.
