Pediatric Heart Stroke

Stroke can happen at any point in a person’s lifetime, from infancy to adulthood. A stroke is caused by the interruption of normal flow of blood to the brain, either by a blockage or a rupture in the blood vessels. Children may experience two types of stroke: hemorrhagic stroke (rupture of blood vessels), or ischemic stroke (blockage caused by a blood clot).
