It is observed when the brain cells or tissues did not get the required amount of oxygen and nutrients. If the blood vessels which carry blood to the brain have the formation of plaque or rupture and bleed, or when there is a blockage in the blood supply to the brain leads to the interventions of stroke. Symptoms include Paralysis, confusion trouble speaking and understanding, vision problems, sudden behavioral change, Seizures, Nausea or vomiting, etc.
There are 3 primary types of strokes
1. Transient Ischemic attacks (TIA): This involves blood clot that typically reverses on their own.
2. Ischemic Stroke: This includes the blockage in the artery due to the formation of blood clots or plaque.
3. Hemorrhagic Stroke: This caused due to either bursting or leaking blood vessel that seeps into the brain.
Carotid Stenting It is also known as Carotid Stenting because it involves exposing the carotid artery and removing plaque with a thin metal tube (stent) implanted into the vessel to act as a scaffold that works to help to widen the blocked artery and prevent it from narrowing again.
