Immediate Stroke Treatment Can Increase Your Longevity

When a brain vessel ruptures or gets blocked by a blood clot, it causes brain stroke. The treatments are given to either open the block or treat the rupture. Chances of survival can be increased if the stroke is identified and treated instantly. Strokes can be prevented by managing high blood pressure, atrial fibrillation, staying physically active and reducing or avoiding cigarette smoking.
Among high-risk patients, medical treatments are used to control high blood pressure, manage atrial fibrillation.

Anticoagulants/ Antiplatelets
Anticoagulant and antiplatelet make the body clot the blood and plays an important role in stroke prevention.
The antihypertensive medicine is used to treat high blood pressure. Depending on the medicine type, it can lower the blood pressure by opening blood vessels, decreasing blood volume or the rate of the force of heart contraction.
When arteries have a buildup of plaque or blockage medical procedure like carotid endarterectomy may be performed. In this procedure, the fatty plaque is removed surgically from the carotid artery.
Angioplasty / Stents
To open up the blocked blood vessel or to treat cardiovascular disease doctors sometimes use implantable steel screens and balloon angioplasty method.
Hemorrhagic Stroke Treatment
Endovascular Procedures
Certain hemorrhagic strokes are treated with endovascular procedures. When compared to the surgical procedure, the endovascular procedure is less invasive and the catheter is introduced through a major artery in the arm or leg, to treat aneurysm or AVM. Finally, a coil is placed there to prevent rupture.
Surgical Treatment
For hemorrhagic stroke or abnormal blood vessels tangle, the surgical procedure is done to immediately arrest the bleeding. If the bleeding is due to a ruptured aneurysm, a metal clip is placed at the base of the aneurysm surgically to deter the bleeding.
