Hello and hope you are doing well.

Areas of diminished blood supply are reported in imaging studies. Therapy is focused on improving the blood supply. Thrombolysis is of net benefit in patients with acute ischaemic stroke, who are younger than 80 years of age and are treated within 4·5 hrs of occurrence of stroke. Plavix is given to prevent clot formation and to improve blood supply to the brain. Any systemic causes like diabetes and hypertension are adequately controlled. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
