Stroke

A Stroke or Brain Attack is a medical emergency occurs when blood flow to brain stops or interrupted or severely reduced and brain cells are deprived of oxygen and nutrients and begin to die. There are two kinds of stroke, Ischemic Stroke (caused by a blood clot that blocks or plugs a blood vessel in the brain) and Hemorrhagic Stroke (caused by a blood vessel that breaks and bleeds into the brain). Mini Strokes or Transient Ischemic Attacks (TIAs), occur when the blood supply to the brain is briefly interrupted.

Ischemic stroke

Ischemic stroke occurs when an artery (blood vessel) carrying blood to the brain is blocked. The underlying condition for this type of obstruction is the development of fatty deposits or blood clots lining the vessel walls, narrowing the arteries in the neck or head. This condition is called Atherosclerosis. These blood clots can cause two types of obstruction: Cerebral thrombosis: refers to a thrombus (blood clot) that develops at the clogged part of the vessel. Cerebral embolism refers generally to a blood clot formed somewhere other than in the brain itself.

Hemorrhagic Stroke

Hemorrhagic Stroke occurs when a weakened blood vessel (artery) ruptures or leaks. Hemorrhagic strokes are less common, but they are responsible for about 40 percent of all stroke deaths. There are two types of hemorrhagic stroke called Intracerebal (A blood vessel inside the brain bursts and leaks blood into surrounding brain tissue) and subarachnoid (involves bleeding in the area between the brain and the tissue covering the brain). Two types of weakened blood vessels usually cause hemorrhagic stroke: Aneurysms and Arteriovenous Malformations (AVMs).

Transient Ischemic Attacks

Transient Ischemic Attacks (TIA) or “ministroke”, an acute episode of temporary neurologic dysfunction, occurs when blood flow to a part of the brain stops temporarily for a brief time. A TIA is a stroke that comes and goes quickly.

Brain and Stroke

The brain is an extremely complex organ that controls various body functions. Each area of the brain is responsible for a special function or ability. The brain has three components namely Cerebrum (controls movement and sensation, speech, thinking, reasoning, memory, vision, and emotions), Cerebellum (coordinate muscle action and control, fine movement, coordination, and balance) and Brainstem (controls heartbeat, blood pressure, and breathing; and helps control the main nerves involved with eye movement, hearing, speech, chewing, and swallowing. A stroke occurs when the blood flow to an area of the brain is interrupted. If a stroke occurs and blood flow can't reach the region that controls a particular body function that part of the body won't work normally resulting in a disability leads to specific impairments.

Vascular Biology

Vascular Biology is the study cellular and molecular functions of Vascular System and its components. The cardiovascular system consists of the heart, blood, and blood vessels (arteries, veins, and capillaries). This complex system is involved in a diverse number of functions. The vascular network consists of both small and large vessels specifically designed to accommodate varying levels of blood flow and pressure, depending upon the location within the body.

Vascular System

The vascular system or the circulatory system is made up of the vessels that carry blood and lymph through the body. The vascular system is s an organ system with a network of vessels and organs that permits blood to flow and circulate to transport necessary body substances to and from the cells. There are three varieties of blood vessels, Arteries, Capillaries and Veins.

Cerebral Circulation

Cerebral Circulation is the movement of blood (blood flow) or circulates, in the brain through the network of blood vessels. During cerebral circulation, the arteries deliver oxygenated blood, glucose and other nutrients to the brain and the veins carry deoxygenated blood back to the heart, removing carbon dioxide, lactic acid, and other metabolic products. Cerebral circulation is important for healthy brain function. Cerebral blood flow (CBF) is the blood supply to the brain in a given period of time.

Blood Vessels

Circulatory System or Cardiovascular System is an Organ System with a network of vessels and organs that permits blood to flow and circulate to transport necessary body substances to and from the cells. Heart, Blood and The Blood Vessels are the parts of the Circulatory System. Blood Vessels are the hollow tubes formed as intricate networks found throughout the body in which blood circulates or transport blood throughout the entire body. There are three types of blood vessels: arteries (carry oxygenated blood from the heart to all parts of body), veins (carry oxygen-depleted blood towards the heart), and capillaries (connect the arteries to veins).

Cerebrovascular System

The cerebrovascular system is a term for the blood vessels that carry blood to and from the brain. The heart pumps oxygen- and nutrient-laden blood to the brain, face, and scalp via two major sets of vessels: the carotid arteries and the vertebral arteries. The carotid arteries run along the front of the neck – one on the left and one on the right. The vertebral arteries travel along the spinal column. A blockage of blood flow in the arteries can cause a stroke.

Cardiovascular Disorders

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) includes a number of conditions affecting the structures or function of the heart or blood vessels. CVDs are a group of disorders of the heart and blood vessels. Cardiovascular disease generally refers to conditions that involve narrowed or blocked blood vessels that can lead to a heart attack, chest pain (angina) or stroke. There are four main types of CVD: Coronary heart disease, Stroke, Peripheral arterial disease, Aortic disease. Heart attacks and strokes are usually acute events and are mainly caused by a blockage that prevents blood from flowing to the heart or brain. The risk factors for CVD include high blood pressure, smoking, high blood cholesterol, diabetes, lack of exercise, being obese, family history of heart disease and ethnic background.

Neurovascular Diseases

Neurovascular diseases affect the cerebral vascular system and the spinal cord that encompasses any abnormality of the blood vessels within or supplying the brain and spine. Abnormalities may be narrowing of arteries which reduce blood flow to the brain that leads to risk of Stroke and weakening of arteries that leads brain aneurysms and increase the risk of intracranial bleeding. Common Neurovascular Diseases are brain aneurysms, stroke, arteriovenous malformations, Vasculitis, cerebral hemorrhage, spinal vascular malformations, carotid stenosis, intracranial atherosclerosis, etc.

Aneurysms

An aneurysm is a ballooning of a weakened region of a blood vessel. It is caused due to the abnormal widening or ballooning of a part of an artery or cardiac chamber, due to weakness in the wall of the of the blood vessel. There are two main types of aneurysms, Aortic Aneurysm and Cerebral Aneurysm. Aortic aneurysm occurs in the aorta (can be abdominal, or thoracic) and Cerebral aneurysm occurs in an artery in the brain.

Thrombosis

The process of formation of a blood clot, known as thrombus, in a blood vessel which obstructs or block the blood flow from an injured blood vessel or organ of the body. The vessel may be any vein or artery. The movement of clots to the crucial parts of the circulatory system may cause serious complications. Blood clots can cause heart attack or stroke; or pain, swelling, redness and tenderness in the area of the clot.

Cerebral Arteriosclerosis

Atherosclerosis, hardening and narrowing of the arteries, is a disease in which plaque builds up inside arteries. Plaque is made of cholesterol, fatty substances, cellular waste products, calcium, fibrin and other substances found in the blood. Plaque hardens and narrows the arteries and may partially or totally block the blood's flow through an artery in the heart, brain, pelvis, legs, arms or kidneys. Cerebral arteriosclerosis is the result of thickening and hardening of the walls of the arteries in the brain. Symptoms of cerebral arteriosclerosis include headache, facial pain, and impaired vision. Cerebral arteriosclerosis can lead to life threatening health events such as ischemic or hemorrhagic strokes. Cerebral arteriosclerosis is also related to a condition known as vascular dementia, in which small, symptom-free strokes cause cumulative damage and death to neurons (nerve cells) in the brain.

Cerebral Arterial Stenosis

Stenosis refers to the hardening and narrowing of the arteries or any blood vessels due to Atherosclerosis in which plaque builds up inside arteries that reduces blood flow. Plaque hardens and narrows the arteries and may partially or totally block the blood's flow through an artery in the heart, brain, pelvis, legs, arms or kidneys. Arterial stenosis is a narrowing of an artery inside the brain that can lead to stroke.

Arteriovenous Malformations

Arteriovenous Malformations (AVMs) are defects of the circulatory system comprised of snarled tangles of arteries and veins. AVM is an abnormal connection between arteries and veins, bypassing the capillary system, and directly diverts blood from the arteries to the veins. AVM most often occurs in the brain or spine. If AVM occurs in the brain, vessels can break and bleed into the brain.

Stroke Rehabilitation

Stroke Rehabilitation helps stroke survivors relearn skills that are lost when part of the brain is damaged. Stroke rehabilitation is an important part of recovery after stroke. Rehabilitation also teaches survivors new ways of performing tasks to circumvent or compensate for any residual disabilities.
