Types of Hemorrhagic Stroke

Hemorrhagic Stroke
Hemorrhagic Stroke

A hemorrhagic stroke is also called an intracerebral hemorrhage, or an ICH. An ICH occurs when a blood vessel ruptures and blood accumulates in the tissue around the rupture. This puts pressure on the brain and causes a loss of blood to the surrounding areas.

Ischemic Stroke
Ischemic Stroke

Ischemic strokes also include something called a "mini stroke" or a TIA (transient ischemic attack). This is a temporary blockage in blood flow to your brain. The symptoms usually last for just a few minutes or may go away in 24 hours.
