Stroke


Arizona Medical Malpractice Attorneys for the Victims of Stroke Misdiagnosis or Mistreatment

A stroke occurs when blood fails to reach an area of the brain, usually due to either a blood vessel becoming blocked (ischemic stroke) or bursting (hemorrhagic stroke).  A stroke is a scary event often accompanied by symptoms that include numbness on one side of the body, difficulty with vision, trouble speaking and confusion.

Prompt and Correct Treatment for a Stroke Is Essential for a Good Recovery

A stroke is a life-threatening emergency which requires prompt medical treatment, usually within three hours after the onset of symptoms, to minimize the potential for serious long-term consequences.  When a patent presents to the emergency department with symptoms of stroke, the correct diagnostic examination and tests must be performed to confirm the existence of the stroke and its type.  Treatment options include thrombolytic drugs known as “clot busters” for ischemic stroke and surgery for hemorrhagic stroke.
