Upon arrival at the Emergency Room, the multidisciplinary team will perform imaging studies such as computed tomography, MRI, and ultrasound to determine the type of stroke you are suffering and establish the ideal treatment for you.
The treatment goal for an ischemic stroke is to unclog the affected blood vessels allowing a normal blood flow. To achieve this, intravenous medications are usually used to break up the clot or perform an endovascular procedure to directly unclog the affected blood vessel.
As for hemorrhagic stroke, the treatment purpose is to stop the bleeding and reduce the brain pressure it causes. You may be given pressure-reducing drugs and antispasmodics, but if the bleeding area is large, surgery will be needed to extract the blood and release intracranial pressure. Currently there are minimally invasive surgical techniques that facilitate this procedure.
