Homorrhagic stroke, hypertension


Stroke is a functional disorder of the brain that occurs suddenly with clinical signs and symptoms, both focal and global, that last more than 24 hours, or can cause death, caused by impaired cerebral blood circulation. Hemorrhagic stroke is a rupture of a brain blood vessel causing blood to leak into the brain parenchymal tissue, cerebrospinal fluid space around the brain or a combination of both.
