Washington DC Stroke Attorney
Brain Damage And Stroke
Brain damage generally refers to permanent damage to brain tissue, as brain tissue does not regenerate or heal in the traditional sense. It can result from trauma, infection, disease or an interruption in blood flow to the brain (stroke). The timely diagnosis and treatment of a stroke can significantly increase one’s chance of minimizing or preventing brain damage completely. Patients at risk for stroke should be evaluated by their internist, who may recommend blood thinners or other medications to decrease the probability of a stroke. People with high blood pressure and women who are pregnant have a significantly higher risk of stroke compared to the general population.
