Stroke and Aneurysm


A stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain is blocked by a blood clot, or when an aneurysm—a weakened area of a blood vessel that “balloons” over time—ruptures and causes bleeding in the brain. Both conditions reduce the brain’s oxygen supply and cells die. The process can lead to long-term disability or death.

Are you at risk for a stroke? Take our assessment below to determine your personal risk factors.

Experts at Bon Secours Neuroscience Institute are able to treat strokes caused by a blood clot by administering clot-busting medications and through advanced neuroendovascular procedures, which mechanically remove a clot from a blood vessel in the brain. Our doctors can also treat an aneurysm-related stroke with neurointerventional surgery.
