The main difference between hemorrhagic and ischemic strokes is the underlying cause of brain damage:

  • In ischemic stroke, brain damage is caused by a lack of blood supply, usually due to a blood clot blocking an artery. Ischemic strokes account for about 87% of all strokes.
  • In hemorrhagic stroke, brain damage is caused by bleeding into the brain tissue from a ruptured blood vessel. Hemorrhagic strokes account for about 13% of all strokes.
