Stroke involves the arteries that go to the inside of the brain. This disease is the fifth in order death cause.
Ischemic and hemorrhagic are the two main types of strokes. The former happens more frequently and it is triggered by a contracting or blocking of arteries that lead to the brain. This means the blood flow is highly reduced.
The latter does not occur that frequently and is activated by bleeding in the brain.
Oxygen and nutrients are brought to the brain by blood vessels. When the blood vessels get blocked or burst, a stroke happens. Then part of the brain does not receive the needed blood and oxygen, so it and brain cells die.
Many body functions are controlled by the brain. It is a complex organ and if the blood flow can’t get to the area that directs a particular body function, that body part won’t be able to function properly.
