Your relative has suffered from ischemic stroke
, which refers to loss of blood supply to parts of brain (as mentioned in the scan report). This is often due to risk factors such as diabetes
, high BP, high cholesterol
Most often, complete recovery is not possible. However, the following steps would ensure good recovery and prevent strokes in the future.
1. Use of antiplatelets such as aspirin (lifelong)
2. Use of statins such as rosuvastatin
3. Control of risk factors (if present)
