There are two types of strokes: ischemic and hemorrhagic.
The majority of strokes are ischemic. An ischemic stroke develops when blood clots or other particles obstruct the blood arteries that supply the brain.
Plaque, which are fatty deposits that accumulate in blood arteries, can potentially create blockages.
A hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a cerebral artery leaks or ruptures. The leaking blood increases the pressure on brain cells, causing them to be damaged.
