Types of Brain Stroke

The classification of strokes primarily involves two main types: ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, each with distinct characteristics and implications.

  • Ischemic Stroke: 

    This type of stroke occurs when a blood clot obstructs or constricts a blood vessel, reducing blood flow to the brain. The blockage hampers the brain’s access to essential nutrients and oxygen, leading to potential damage and impairment.

  • Hemorrhagic Stroke

    In contrast, a hemorrhagic stroke arises from the rupture of a blood vessel within the brain. This rupture causes bleeding, increasing pressure on the delicate brain tissues. The resulting disturbance can lead to complications and detrimental effects on neurological functioning.

Brain Stroke Treatment

  • Brain stroke treatment aims to restore blood flow to the brain, minimize damage, and prevent future occurrences. The treatment approach depends on the type of stroke, severity, and individual factors.

Here are some common types of brain surgery for stroke:

1. Clipping:

This procedure involves placing a small metal clip around the base of an aneurysm to prevent it from rupturing and causing a stroke.

2. Coiling:

In this minimally invasive procedure, a catheter is guided to the aneurysm site, and the surgeon places small platinum coils to promote blood clotting and prevent further bleeding.

3. Carotid Endarterectomy:

This surgery involves removing plaque buildup from the carotid artery to restore proper blood flow to the brain.

4. Thrombectomy:

It involves removing a blood clot using specialized devices to restore blood flow to the brain.

I have known Dr. Raveesh sunkara since 2020. I approached him when my friend diagnosed with brain hammarage. I was absolutely broken when I came to know that. He has given very good treatment and monitored his health continually. He has always been very supportive and very accessible in the hour of our need despite his busy work schedules. He takes time to know his patients, inquires about all concerns and issues they have and resolves them and makes sure that their stress levels are low. The care, concern and professionalism that he shows to his patients is amazing. There were a lot of times when he lost interest in his life, became so depressed. But, undoubtedly, it is because of him that he have become so positive after those gruelling hours of rehabilitation and other kinds of medical treatment. Even now, when we go for annual checkups he treats with him with as much care. Moreover, whenever I recommended him to some of my friends/acquaintances who had similar health issues, he treated them in the same way, with utmost care and concern. All I can say is that he is a great doctor and, more than that, an awesome human being.

Dr. Raveesh performed my husband's surgery. It's been more than one month now and he is doing well now. He is a very nice doctor . After diagnosing the problem, he explained the problem and required procedure to be done to me and my family. He advised to get the surgery done immediately rather than to wait . He assured that my husband would be fine and there is no life risk in doing surgery. During the hospitalization period, he was very supportive. He got in touch even after discharge to check about my husband's well being. He has lot of patience and good professional experience.
