WHAT IS A STROKE?
A stroke or a “brain attack” is a sudden interruption in the brain’s blood supply. When the blood supply is interrupted, your brain no longer gets the oxygen and nutrients it needs, therefore causing brain cells to die by the minute.
Strokes can be caused either by a clot obstructing the flow of blood to the brain called Acute Ischemic Stroke or by a blood vessel rupturing and preventing blood flow to the brain called a Hemorrhagic Stroke.
THERAPIES AND TREATMENTS
ACUTE ISCHEMIC STROKE
An acute ischemic stroke (AIS) occurs when a vessel supplying blood to the brain is blocked.1Learn More about AIS
HEMORRHAGIC STROKE AND BRAIN ANEURYSM
A hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a weakened blood vessel ruptures.1Learn More about Brain Aneurysms

An arteriovenous malformation, AVM, is an abnormal connection between arteries and veins. It involves a defect in the blood vessel system thought to occur mostly during fetal development.2Learn more about AVM
