Haemorrhagic stroke

Other Names:
Intracerebral hemorrhage
Cerebral bleed
Intraparenchymal bleed
Burst blood vessel in the brain

A hemorrhagic stroke happens when an artery in the brain leaks blood or ruptures. The leaked blood puts too much pressure on brain cells, which damages them.


Hemorrhagic stroke accounts for approximately 15% of strokes.
