Emergency Treatment of a Stroke is Not Always Ideal

One of the most damaging and potentially deadly results of a brain aneurysm is a brain attack, known as a stroke. During a stroke, blood flow to a certain area of the brain is cut off, resulting in oxygen deprivation and cell death. This can be caused by either a rupture of an existing brain aneurysm or an episode in which a blood clot blocks the flow of blood to a section of the brain.


Symptoms to be on the lookout for include the following:

• Numbness in the face, arm, or leg on one side of the body, accompanied by sudden weakness

• Unexpected loss of vision, speech, coordination, and sensation, as well as an inability to focus and understand

• Abrupt loss of balance

• Diminished vision, particularly in one eye

• Severe headache pain followed by a loss of consciousness

• Difficulty swallowing, which may include vomiting and nausea

• A brief episode involving the loss of consciousness

• A sudden fall and dizziness

As with the onset of an aneurysm, call an emergency service if any of these symptoms occur. Immediate treatment is critical to survival and recovery. In the case of a stroke, if symptoms pass quickly, it could be an indication of a transient ischemic attack (TIA), a precursor to a stroke caused by a brief blockage of blood flow to the brain.

Study: Strokes

A comprehensive study involving 257,551 participants over 13 years assessed the effects of fruits and vegetables on the participants’ risk for a stroke, blocked artery, or ruptured artery. Subjects were divided into three groups: those who ate less than three servings of fruits and vegetables daily; those who ate four to five servings daily; and those who ate more than five servings per day. The results were consistent with other research diet studies, showing that both groups that consumed three or more servings of fruits and vegetables had a marked reduction of risk, and those consuming five or more servings had the least chance of developing complications.

Emergency Treatment of a Stroke is Not Always Ideal

Initially, upon reaching the hospital, victims of a stroke may be started on clot dissolving drugs such as aspirin and an intravenous injection of tissue plasminogen activator (TPA). Depending on the severity of the cause, a surgical procedure may be performed to remove the clot. As a preventive measure for some patients, surgeons are also removing plaque from the arteries on the side of the neck, which lead to the brain, in a procedure called a carotid endarterectomy.

However, concern has recently arisen after research studies indicating that these routine protocols of administering medication directly into the brain or inserting mechanical devices to remove obstructions are not always beneficial. An investigation is currently ongoing to help determine who might be a good candidate for such treatments. Overall, as with other medical procedures performed for similar problems of arteriosclerosis and aneurysms, these procedures do not address the cause of the disease.

But if neither medication nor surgical intervention addresses the core of the issue, what methods should those at risk of atherosclerosis and aneurysm use to reduce their risk and reverse their disease?
