Around 15% of strokes are haemorrhagic (due to bleeding in or around the brain). This guide explains the two different types of stroke caused by a bleed, intracerebral and subarachnoid haemorrhage, and how they are diagnosed and treated.
In a study published in the journal, The Lancet Neurology, scientists analysed data from more than 1,600 adults with cavernoma - a cluster of abnormal blood vessels in the brain - to generate estimates of risk. The findings could help both doctors and patients to make informed decisions about their treatment.
Intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is a type of stroke, which is caused by bleeding in the brain, ultimately leading to brain damage, disability and often death. We currently know very little about the biological changes that occur in the brain after intracerebral haemorrhage.
Postgraduate fellowship: What is the impact of damaged thinking ability caused by a spontaneous bleed in the brain?
Published online first in the journal Neurology, a new study suggests that people with AF who have an ICH due to their medication have similar outcomes whether they're on a NOAC or a vitamin K antagonist drug.
PRESTIGE-AF is a new multi-million Euro initiative funded by the European Commission has been set up to help prevent stroke in patients with existing conditions.
This study will show whether more intensive lowering of blood pressure (BP) in survivors of intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is feasible, safe and effective in reducing brain injury. If successful, the study will pave the way for the design a larger definitive trial.
A haemorrhagic stroke is a stroke that is caused by bleeding in or around the brain. Although they are less common than strokes that are caused by a blockage, they can be much more serious.
A short, easy-to-read guide for stroke survivors, produced by the Stroke Association. Packed with essential information to help people understand their stroke.
