HEART; BLOCKED ARTERIES CAUSES STROKE

Hello, it’s been a wonderful weekend of rest after the stress of last week 😰, unfortunately,

we will be starting the same routine of stress come tomorrow.

It’s important to note that as we face these stressful routines our heart also faces same as well.

So, the question now will be❓❓

  • How Healthy is your Heart?
  • For how long can it withstand the stress you put it through?

 

Delving into the Topic for today HEART; BLOCKED ARTERIES CAUSES STROKE

We have been doing a series on the HEART for some days now and the aim is to bring the

trend of death due to Heart attack and Heart Diseases to our faces.

Also to help us understand what is really going on in there.

I said that because there are solutions to every Heart Disease (cardiovascular disease).

In our last post, we looked at the connection between the Heart and Erectile Dysfunction. 

Today our focus is on the relationship between the Heart and  “STROKE”.

 

Stroke


Overview

Think of a stroke as a “brain attack“— it is an emergency!

When symptoms appear, call for help immediately; every minute counts.

A stroke occurs when the brain is deprived of blood supply. Without oxygen, brain cells die.

Depending on the area affected, a person may have problems speaking, walking, seeing, or thinking.

A stroke may result in permanent brain damage or death.

If the stroke is caused by a blood clot, a clot-busting drug may be used to restore blood flow.

Blood supply of the brain

To understand stroke, it is helpful to know how blood circulates to the brain (see Anatomy of the Brain).

Blood is pumped from the heart and carried to the brain by two paired arteries,

the internal carotid arteries and the vertebral arteries.

The internal carotid arteries supply the anterior (front) areas, the vertebral arteries supply the posterior (back) areas of the brain.

After passing through the skull, the right and left vertebral arteries join together to form a single basilar artery.

The basilar artery and the internal carotid arteries communicate with each other in a ring at the base of the

brain called the Circle of Willis.

The middle cerebral artery is the artery most often blocked during a stroke

A stroke is a sudden interruption of the blood supply to the brain.

The middle cerebral artery is most often blocked during a stroke.

The internal carotid arteries form the anterior (green) circulation and

the vertebral/basilar arteries supply the posterior (red) circulation of the brain.

The two systems connect at the Circle of Willis (circle).

Please pardon all this medical jargon, just want to give us a visual explanation of stroke.

Types of stroke include:

A) Ischemic stroke due to a build-up of atherosclerotic plaques,

B) An embolic stroke from blood clots that stick to plaques and break off,

C) A hemorrhagic stroke from bleeding into the subarachnoid space, and

D) Intracerebral hemorrhage from tiny vessel ruptures due to hypertension.

 

Types of stroke

 

Ischemic

(“is-skeem-ic”) stroke occurs when an artery to the brain is blocked.

Ischemic stroke is by far the most common kind of stroke, accounting for about 88 percent of all strokes.

Stroke can affect people of all ages, including children.

The brain depends on its arteries to bring fresh blood from the heart and lungs.

The blood carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain and takes away carbon dioxide and cellular waste.

If an artery is blocked, the brain cells (neurons) cannot make enough energy and will eventually stop working.

If the artery remains blocked for more than a few minutes, the brain cells may die.

This is why immediate medical treatment is critical

 

Embolic stroke

– is caused when a clot breaks off from the artery wall it becomes an embolus,

which can travel farther down the bloodstream to block a smaller artery.

Emboli usually come from the heart, where different diseases cause clot formation.

 

Hemorrhagic stroke

– (less common – 13% of cases) is caused by the rupture or leaking of an artery either within or around the brain.

It occurs when a weakened blood vessel ruptures, releasing blood into the space surrounding the brain.

This is called a subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH).

It can be caused by a ruptured aneurysm (Fig. 2C), arteriovenous malformation (AVM), or head trauma.

 

 Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH):

is known as Bleeding within the brain tissue itself and is primarily caused by hypertension (Fig. D).

Hypertension is an elevation of blood pressure which may cause tiny arteries to burst inside the brain.

 

Let’s pause it here, we will continue with the causes, symptoms and solutions in our next post.
