Your Professional Medical Team

Approximately 20,000 people in Hong Kong suffer a stroke each year. As the fourth leading cause of death in the city, stroke has a death rate of 15 to 20 percent and often causes long-term effects in survivors, affecting their quality of life and requiring extensive treatment.

 

In an effort to help patients identify and reduce the risk of stroke, Hong Kong Adventist Hospital - Stubbs Road offers comprehensive check-ups that focus on the health condition of the brain and its blood vessels. Assessments are conducted by our experienced specialists with the support of state-of-the-art medical technology.

   

 

What is Stroke?

The medical term for a stroke is cerebrovascular accident. It occurs when a blood vessel in the brain is blocked or ruptures, causing brain cells to be deprived of oxygen and die. The body parts that are controlled by the affected brain cells are therefore disabled.

 

There are two major types of stroke:

Ischemic stroke

An ischemic stroke occurs when a blood vessel carrying blood to the brain is blocked. This may be caused by atherosclerosis, as in the hardening of the vessel itself, or by blockage of the vessel due to a blood clot carried from arteries in the heart or neck.

 

Hemorrhagic stroke

A hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a blood vessel in the brain suddenly ruptures. Causes include poorly controlled high blood pressure, usage of blood thinners or antiplatelet drugs, brain tumour, or disease of the blood vessels in the brain such as aneurysm or vascular malformations. 

 

 

Why is Early Prevention Important?

A stroke can be fatal or may bring about serious consequences, including hemiplegia, speech impairment, cognitive impairment, seizure and depression. Some patients lose the ability to take care of themselves, bringing stress and pressure to themselves and their families.

 

Early assessment helps patients understand the risks associated with stroke and allows for prompt intervention when necessary.

 

Those who have a history of minor stroke or transient ischemic attack may prevent relapses with the help of medication. If a blood vessel in the brain is found to be too narrow or an artery in the neck has over-hardened, patients may still have time to treat the condition or prevent it from worsening.

 

Those who have strong family history of cerebrovascular diseases can have their risk factors identified and corrected before irreversible damaged is caused.

 

 

Who Needs a Checkup?

We recommend individuals with the following risk factors to stay alert:

  • A family history of stroke
  • Aged above 50 (risk increases with age)
  • History of minor stroke (or transient ischemic attack)
  • History of metabolic syndrome, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, hyperlipidemia
  • History of cardiovascular disease, such as coronary artery disease, irregular heartbeats
  • Obesity
  • Lack of exercise
  • Excessive stress
  • Smoking
  • Heavy alcohol consumption

 

 

Five Warning Signs of Stroke

Most strokes come without warning. If you experience any of the following conditions, you should consult your doctor immediately to alleviate any impact of a stroke:

  • Sudden numbness, weakness, or even paralysis on one side of the body
  • Difficulty swallowing or talking
  • Blurred vision or transient loss of vision 
  • Acute headache or dizziness
  • Sudden loss or partial impairment of consciousness

 

Transient ischemic attack share similar symptoms with strokes but their symptoms usually last for only a few minutes (less than 24 hours). However, it is a warning sign of stroke which signifies that chance of developing a major stroke in coming weeks is much increased.  Those who have experienced a transient ischemic attack should immediately consult their doctor.

 

 

Determining Your Risk of a Stroke

Clinical symptoms and risk factors such as blood pressure, cholesterol level, blood sugar level, hemorrhagic tendency, and blood viscosity can help physicians assess a patient’s risk of stroke. A computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan may also be used to help physicians assess the condition of a patient’s brain tissues and blood vessels more clearly and precisely.
