  • 1. CEREBROVASCULAR ACCIDENTS HOMOEOPATHIC ANALYTICAL APPROACHDr.K.Ram Kumar M.D(Hom) Senior Medical Officer Directorate of AYUSH Govt of NCT of Delhi.

2. CEREBROVASCULAR ACCIDENTS STROKE(APOPLEXY)The rapid onset of focal neurological deficit, resulting from diseases of the Cerebral vasculature and its contents. 3. Diseases of the Cerebral blood vessels are the third most common cause of death next to Ischaemic Heart Disease and Cancer. Cerebrovascular disease can cause death and disability by; Ischemia from occlusion of blood vessels (producing Cerebral Ischaemia and Infarction.) Or Hemorrhage through their rupture. 4. GENERAL CLASSIFICATION Ischaemic variety; Cerebral Thrombosis Cerebral Embolism Hemorrhagic variety; Ruptured Aneurysm in the young Hypertensive Cerebral hemorrhage in the elderly Lacunar infarcts are deep, small multiple wedge-shaped cerebral infarcts. 5. RISK FACTORS MAJOR RISKS Arterial Hypertension Diabetes mellitus Smoking Hyperlipidaemia Polycythaemia, sickle cell anemia Thrombocythaemia Heart failure, Atrial fibrillation, Infective endocarditisMINOR RISKS High alcohol intake Positive family history Oral Contraceptives Trauma 6. CLINICAL CLASSIFICATION Complete, if the focal neurological deficit is persistent and not worsening. Transient (TIA) if the focal neurological deficit recovers within 24 hours. Evolving if the focal neurological deficit continues to worsen after about 6 hours from onset. 7. HOMOEOPATHIC THERAPEUTICAL APPROACH 8. THE GOALS OF THERAPY TO AVOID DEVELOPMENTOF CEREBRAL INFARCTIONAND IF, PRESENT ALREADY TO PREVENT ITS PROGRSSION OR RECCURENCE 9. THERAPEUTICS Based on; Mode of onset of the disease & Aetiology Anatomical Site Of lesions Stage of the disease 10.
