To begin with, a brief reminder of what is stroke A stroke occurs when a part of the brain is suddenly deprived of blood. There are ischemic strokes and hemorrhagic strokes. They often occur in people with risk factors. Risk factors include hypertension. According to Dr. Patrice BARASUKANA cardiologist, the hypertensive patient must take the treatment regularly. If the stroke is already established, the complete cardiovascular assessment must be performed. Imaging is of paramount importance as it guides the treatment. Mrs. Liesse CURINYANA medical delegate at Axis Pharma pointed out that antihypertensive drugs exist including diuretics and antagonists of angiotensin II and are available from Axis Pharma. Medical Delegate Clovis BIDAGAZA insisted on treating thrombosis which is a cause of stroke.
