What is the difference between a hemorrhagic stroke and a thromboembolic stroke?
About 10 percent are due to bleeding in your brain from a torn or ruptured blood vessel. This is called a hemorrhagic stroke. In a thrombotic stroke, the artery is blocked by a thrombus (blood clot) that forms there.
How do you determine if a stroke is ischemic or hemorrhagic?
With an ischemic stroke, the first thing your doctor will likely do is perform a CT scan to look for any bleeding. If they decide that the cause is a hemorrhagic stroke, they will likely assess how well your blood clots and if any blood-thinning medications you take may have contributed.
What is hemorrhagic stroke?
A hemorrhagic stroke occurs when blood from an artery suddenly begins bleeding into the brain. As a result, the part of the body controlled by the damaged area of the brain cannot work properly. There are two main types of hemorrhagic stroke: Intracranial hemorrhages, when the bleeding occurs inside the brain.
What is the difference between bleeding and hemorrhage?
Bleeding, also called hemorrhage, is the name used to describe blood loss. It can refer to blood loss inside the body, called internal bleeding, or to blood loss outside of the body, called external bleeding. Blood loss can occur in almost any area of the body.
How do hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke symptoms differ?
A hemorrhagic stroke happens when a weak blood vessel bursts and bleeds into the brain. People who experience this type of stroke, in addition to other stroke symptoms, will likely experience a sudden onset headache or head pain — a warning sign that might not occur during ischemic stroke.
What is difference between ICH and SAH?
Intraparenchymal hemorrhage (IPH; Figure 1) refers to nontraumatic bleeding into the brain parenchyma. (Intracerebral hemorrhage, often abbreviated ICH, is used more often in the clinical literature.) Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) refers to bleeding into the space between the pia and the arachnoid membranes.
