  1. If the father had a stroke before the age of 45, then this indicates genetic changes in the blood coagulation system, that is, an increased tendency to form blood clots in the vessels. Unfortunately, I have many young stroke patients. Monitor the coagulogram and platelet aggregation indicators at least once a year. Try to drink enough water, move around, and wear compression knee socks on long trips or flights. Think about what factors might have affected your father's stroke and try to avoid them.

  2. Stroke, in simple words, is a pathological condition that occurs when there is no blood supply to the brain.

    There are two types of strokes, there is nothing to start with.

    There is hemorrhagic, there is ischemic.

    The first, that is, hemorrhagic occurs due to increased pressure in the system of blood vessels in the brain, which simply burst from such force. This leads to the formation of a hematoma in the skull. In fact, this is a large accumulation of blood that presses on the brain substance, causing massive swelling and fusion of the brain stem. This often happens in hypertensive patients.

    With an ischemic bit, it's different. Here the whole thing is not a rupture of the arteries, as was the case with hemorrhagic, but a narrowing of the vessel or its blockage. Blockage is caused by blood clots. Narrowing of the same from atherosclerosis, in which plaques form on the vessels.

    So that's what I'm getting at. Genetically, the stroke itself is not transmitted, there is no such mechanism. A tendency to high blood pressure, the formation of atherosclerotic plaques, and other factors may be transmitted. But the stroke itself is not.

    It's like a cold, only much worse. If you stand in a draught and you are blown-wait for snot in two days. It's the same here. If you have high blood pressure, or atherosclerosis, which, by the way, often depends on nutrition, you can also develop a stroke. Such cases
