Learn why stroke is the most common cause of morbidity and mortality in neurosurgical cases from Dr Santhosh N U, one among the Best Endovascular Neurosurgeon in Bangalore at Aster CMI Hospital.
A stroke occurs when the blood supply to a part of the brain is suddenly blocked (Ischemic Stroke) or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts (Haemorrhagic Stroke). As brain cells constantly need glucose and oxygen, the affected brain cells die.
Symptoms of a Stroke:
- Sudden drooping of the face
- Sudden weakness or numbness of the upper or lower limb on either side
- Difficulty in speaking and understanding
- Sudden onset of vertigo, imbalance, difficulty in swallowing and sometimes, coma
