Hello,
Stroke is the rapidly developing loss of brain functions due to a disturbance in the blood vessels supplying blood to the brain. This can be due to ischemia (lack of blood supply) caused by thrombosis or embolism, or due to a hemorrhage.
Stroke treatment is divided into 3 phases (i.e., prevention, acute treatment, subacute/chronic treatment).

Depending upon these phases, the treatment of stroke includes platelet antiaggregants like aspirin, ticlopidine (Ticlid), clopidogrel (Plavix); HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins); antihypertensives; thrombin inhibitors like warfarin and thrombolytics like tissue-type plasminogen activator.

Recently a new approach has been used in many hospitals.It is hyperbaric oxygen therapy. You can learn more about this therapy from the following website:

I hope I have provided you with sufficient information. In case you need anymore then pls post us.

Take care and regards.
