Stroke is the damage of the brain due to interruption of blood supply (or) reduction of blood supply to the brain, resulting in lack of oxygen & nutrients to the brain, thus the brain cells begin to die in minutes. CNS infarction is defined as the brain cell death (or) spinal cord attributable to ischemia includes intercerebral hemorrhage and sub arachnoid hemorrhage. Evidence revealed that D-dimer levels might have a role in the acute diagnosis of ischemic stroke subtypes, particularly thromboembolic and lacunar stroke. Elevated levels are associated with short term poor ischaemic stroke managed by interventional method and IV tissue plasmogen activator, medication delivered directly to brain.
Keywords: Definition, Ischaemic stroke, Hemorrhagic stroke, D- dimer, Thrombectomy, Pathophysiology, Tissue plasmogen activator.
