There are a lot of factors that can cause clotting of blood. Severe head trauma may induce bleeding in the meninges and may cause tears or damages in the tissues found in the brain area. When the bleeding does not stop and pools around the brain, it may eventually form clots which will then travel inside the brain.
Clots formed in different parts of the body such as the heart may also cause blood clots in the brain. When these clusters break away from the area where it originated, it may travel together with blood and go to the brain. When these small clusters of blood cause blockage in the brain, it will result to stroke.
People who have blood clots in the brain show symptoms such as reoccurring seizures, loss of coordination, severe headaches, paralysis and sudden strokes. When these symptoms appear, doctors will automatically check the patient’s brain and its functions, they will ask about events that may have caused these symptoms to appear.
Treating blood clots in the brain may be a very difficult procedure to do. The sensitivity of the brain from foreign objects makes treatment very meticulous. When a procedure in the brain is done, there should be a 100 percent accuracy and that no mistakes, even how small it is, should be made. One wrong move may paralyze the patient or worse, the person may end up brain dead.
Treatments are given depending on the severity of the condition. If the clots are small, medications like aspirin may be used to help dissolve the blood cluster. If aspirins do not work, steroids may also be prescribed. Brain surgeries like craniotomy may be done to help drain the clots out of the brain.
There may be different ways to help cure this condition. Ask a doctor about possible options and ask them about its effects and possible side effects. After gathering enough information, weigh in the pros and cons of every method. Be sure to ask your doctor about the possibilities of aggravating the condition since all procedures have different effects on a person.
