Stroke occurs when the supply of blood to the brain is either interrupted  or reduced,when this happens the brain does not get enough  oxygen or nutrient  and brain cells start  to die. There are

 three types  of stroke.

1)Ischemic stroke

2)Hemorrhagic stroke

3.Transient ischemic  attacks(TIAs)

 *1)Ischemic* *stroke-this* type  of stroke is caused by blockages  or narrowing  of arteries that provide blood to the brain resulting  in ischemia:ischemia severely  reduce blood flow that damage the brain cells. These blockage are often caused  by blood clot, which can form in the brain arteries

They can also be form  in other blood vessels in the body before being swept through the bloodstream and into narrower arteries in The brain.Also fatty deposit  within the arteries called plague can  cause clots that result into ischemia.

 *2)Hemorrhagic* *stroke* –

Are caused by arteries in the brain either leaking blood or burst open. Leak blood puts pressure  on the brain cells and damage them. It also reduce blood supply that can reach the brain tissue after the hemorrhage.Blood vessel can burst and spill blood into the brain or near the surface of the brain,sending blood into the space between the brain and the skull. The rupture can be caused by condition such as hypertension ,trauma, blood thinning medication and aneurysm: Aneurysms are weakness in the blood vessel walls. There are two types  of hemorrhagic stroke

 _1)intracerebral_ _hemorrhage_ which is the most common  type and occur when brain Tissues become flooded with blood after an artery in the brain burst.

 _2)subarachnoid_ _hemorrhage. the_ bleeding occurs in the area btw  the brain and the thin tissues that covers it.

 *3)Transient* *ischemic* *attacks(TIAs).occurs* when the blood flow to the brain is briefly interrupted. TIAs is similar to ischemic stroke in that they are often caused  by blood clots or other  clots.
