According to the American Stroke Association, stroke is the 5th leading cause of death in the United States. The outcome of a stroke patient’s recovery is affected by the type of stroke he or she suffered from. There are two most common types: Ischemic and Hemorrhagic stroke.
Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that at least 87% of stroke patients experience an ischemic stroke, which is what happens when the artery has blood clots that block the blood supply or blood flow to the brain. A hemorrhagic stroke, on the other hand, occurs when the artery ruptures, opens, or leaks due to high blood pressure or an aneurysm.
