What is Hemorrhagic Stroke ?

Hemorrhagic Stroke is a medical condition characterized by the rupture of one or more weakened blood vessels in the brain. Blood leaks from the burst vessel into surrounding brain tissue, accumulates and compresses surrounding brain tissue. Blood clots may also be formed and cut off blood supply to the other brain tissue. There are two types of hemorrhagic stroke depending on the location where the blood vessel bursts: Intracerebral Hemorrhagic Stroke (bleeding in the brain) and Subarachnoid Hemorrhagic Stroke (bleeding in the area between the brain and the thin layer of tissues that cover the brain). Hemorrhagic Stroke is a life-threatening condition as it tends to affect larger areas of the brain as compared to an ischemic stroke, causing greater impairment of bodily and brain functions, such as paralysis, loss of ability to speak and swallow memory loss and loss of intellect.
