Vascular neurology is the treatment of strokes. A stroke affects the blood vessel that lead to the loss of brain function and travel within the brain. A stroke is characterized by symptoms such as numbness, weakness, vision changes and speech disturbance.
stroke occurs when an artery carrying oxygen and nutrients to the brain is
either blocked by a blood clot or bursts .When this occurs, the part of the brain
that relies on blood supply from the interrupted blood vessel cannot receive
adequate blood oxygen and nutrients, which causes damage to the brain.
There are usually many professionals who work together as part of the stroke care team. Typically, a neurologist is involved in the more complex details of stroke diagnosis and stroke treatment. Sometimes, in particularly complicated situations, a vascular neurologist is consulted to direct stroke diagnosis and treatment, and may follow up with you throughout your recovery. A vascular neurologist is a neurologist who also has additional training and expertise in stroke care, treatment and prevention.
