Stroke Prevention & Post-Stroke Care
Stroke can be life-threatening. Stroke is roughly classified as a cerebral infarction where the cerebral blood vessel is clogged, causing cerebral hemorrhage bleeding in the brain or a subarachnoid hemorrhage which causes bleeding on the surface of the brain due to cerebral aneurysm.
There is no genetic component to stroke. The main causes of stroke are related to lifestyle diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, and hyperlipidemia.
Cerebral infarction and stroke can not be prevented only by periodically examining brain images. Lifestyle changes are critically important to manage and prevent the occurrence of stroke. Since it is important for patients to understand the disease, at our clinic, a polite explanation will be given to patients so that they can understand how to manage lifestyle diseases.
Regarding subarachnoid hemorrhage, most of the causes are cerebral aneurysms. Our hospital can check cerebral aneurysm using a cerebrovascular CT.
