Blood Clots in the Brain Can Cause Serious & Permanent Damage

Video Transcription:
As growing up or as adults we know that blood clots are some of the most useful things our body does in terms of stopping bleeding and beginning the process of healing a wound. But when they occur in the brain it's quite a different story.

Damage to the structure of the brain many times results in small bleeds. Some areas of the brain begin to bleed and when blood accumulates in the brain, particularly when it clots it will many times cut off the blood supply and can erupt the flow of the fluids that need to get to the brain. This can cause significant and permanent damage.

Blood clots in the brain need to be identified immediately and they need to be treated properly.
