Bleeding in the brain (also called a brain hemorrhage or brain bleed) can happen because of an accident, brain tumor, stroke, or high blood pressure caused by congenital or other health conditions.
Brain bleed can reduce oxygen delivery to the brain, create extra pressure in the brain and kill brain cells. If you’re having brain bleed symptoms, it’s crucial to get treatment as quickly as possible.
Brain bleed symptoms may include:
Brain bleed treatments depend on the size of the hemorrhage, its location in the brain, and the amount of swelling it causes. Once your doctor locates the source of the bleeding, hemorrhage treatments may include:
This approach allows your surgeon to remove a tumor or a blood clot through a dime-sized channel, or port. Compared with traditional open surgery, it typically causes less scarring, fewer complications, and has a quicker recovery time.
In some cases, traditional surgery may be needed to drain blood from the brain or to repair damaged blood vessels.
This creates room for the hematoma to expand without damaging brain cells.
Drugs are used to control blood pressure, seizures or headaches.
A long, thin tube is threaded through blood vessels until it reaches the affected area.
These brain bleed treatments can help individuals regain brain functions (such as the ability to speak) that may have been affected by brain bleed.
