Stroke is a sudden interruption of constant blood flow to the brain that causes loss of neurological function. The interruption of blood flow can be caused by a blockage, leading to the more common ischemic stroke, or by bleeding in the brain, leading to the more deadly hemorrhagic stroke. Stroke often occurs with little or no warning, and the results can be life threatening. 

Ischemic strokes cause brain tissue to die and causes secondary swelling leading to increased pressure in the intracranial compartments.

In the early stage of infarcts, nonsurgical methods like thrombolysis or endovascular treatments can be offered to the patient. However surgery is needed in many cases. 

 It is crucial that proper blood flow and oxygen be restored to the brain as soon as possible. Without oxygen and important nutrients, the affected brain cells are either damaged or die within a few minutes. Once brain cells die, they generally do not regenerate and devastating damage may occur, sometimes resulting in physical, cognitive and mental disabilities. 

Stroke Surgery

1] Decompressive Craniotomy for Ischemic stroke

2] Surgery for removal of clot in Hemorrhagic Stroke.

3] Surgery for aneurysms

4] Carotid End artertectomy

5] Surgery for cortical venous sinus thrombosis
