About Stroke Treatment

Stroke Treatment in India starts from $3400. The total cost of the treatment depends on the diagnosis and facilities opted by the patient.

Stroke is a loss of neurological function caused by a sudden interruption of continuous blood supply to the brain. Blood flow can be disrupted by a blockage, which causes ischemic stroke, or with bleeding in the brain, which causes hemorrhagic stroke, which is more fatal. Ischemic stroke accounts for the majority of strokes. Strokes frequently strike without warning, and the consequences may be catastrophic. It is critical that normal blood flow and oxygen to the brain be restored as quickly as possible. The afflicted brain cells are either injured or die within minutes of being deprived of oxygen and essential nutrients. When brain cells die, they usually do not recover, causing severe damage that can lead to physical, cognitive, and mental problems.

Follow up care

Ischemic Stroke: To recover motor skills and coordination, rehabilitation is frequently required. Other types of therapy, such as occupational, physical, and speech therapy, may be beneficial in regaining lost functions. Younger persons and those who improve rapidly are more likely to regain function.

Hemorrhagic Stroke: The length of recovery and rehabilitation is determined by the severity of the stroke as well as the extent of tissue damage. Depending on the patient’s needs, several forms of therapy may be used. Physical, occupational, and speech therapy are all options. The main objective of therapy is to help you regain as much function as you can.

Frequently asked questions about Stroke Treatment

Ischemic Stroke: Treatment’s initial objective is to get breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure back to normal. If required, your doctor will use medicine to try to lower the pressure in your brain. Intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), which dissolves clots, is the most common therapy for ischemic stroke. The American Heart Association (AHA) and the American Stroke Association (ASA) published guidelines in 2018 stating that tPA is most beneficial when administered within four and a half hours after the onset of a stroke.

In case there has been a history of hemorrhagic stroke, brain bleeding, a major surgery in the recent past, or a head injury, you can’t use tPA since it might induce bleeding. It is also not safe to take if you are taking anticoagulants.

Clots can be removed surgically if tPA does not work. Up to 24 hours after the beginning of stroke symptoms, a mechanical clot removal could be undertaken.  To avoid future clots, long-term therapies include aspirin (Bayer) or an anticoagulant. If an ischemic stroke has happened because of an illness like high blood pressure or atherosclerosis, treatment is must for those issues as well.

Hemorrhagic Stroke: A hemorrhagic stroke needs immediate medical attention. The goal of this treatment is to stop the bleeding in your brain and relieve the pressure created by it. Drugs can be administered to lower blood pressure and slow bleeding. The possibility of severe bleeding increases if you have a hemorrhagic stroke and you are on blood thinners. When emergency treatment is done, drugs to counteract the blood thinners’ effect are typically administered immediately.

Surgical treatment: Surgery may be required to patch the burst blood vessel and halt the bleeding in more serious strokes. In case an AVM is the source of the stroke, surgery may be done to remove it. This is not always achievable, because it is dependent on the AVM’s position. Surgery may be necessary to alleviate the pressure created by the bleeding and swelling in the brain.

Following a stroke, you may have one or more of the following common consequences.

  • Blood clots or deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Depression and other mood changes
  • Aphasia and other speech disorders
  • Involuntary muscle tightening or spasticity
  • Chronic headaches
  • Brain Damage or Death
