Hemorrhagic stroke

  • Alternative Names

    Brain bleeding; Brain hemorrhage; Stroke - hemorrhagic


    Most cases of hemorrhagic stroke are associated with specific risk factors, such as high blood pressure, smoking, or cocaine use. Controlling blood pressure and avoiding smoking and cocaine can reduce the chances of brain bleeding. Surgery to correct blood vessel abnormalities like aneurysms or AVMs is sometimes advisable to prevent bleeding.
