Most strokes are caused by a blockage in an artery leading to the brain – an ischaemic stroke. However, about 15% are due to bleeding in or around the brain. These are called haemorrhagic strokes. This factsheet explains the different types of stroke caused by bleeding and how they are diagnosed and treated. It also lists sources of further information and support. This guide is also available as a free download.
