Thank you for posting your query.
Bleed in the spinal cord is often due to bleeding diathesis, such as low platelet count
, other disorders of blood, etc, or sometimes due to trauma.
Spinal cord stroke
is often due to lack of blood flow to spinal cord and the risk factors are diabetes
, high BP or cholesterol
I agree with you that both spinal cord bleed and stroke would have similar adverse impact on the patient.
I hope it helps.
