Treatment Techniques for Acute Ischemic Stroke

Acute Ischemic Stroke

Acute ischemic stroke is a condition where the blood supply to the brain is disrupted, resulting in oxygen starvation, brain damage and loss of function.
It is caused by a blood clot in an artery obstructing blood supply to the brain, a situation known as ischemia.
Stroke can have different effects depending on which part of the brain is affected and how quickly it is treated.
