Embolism (Cerebral)

When you experience a cerebral embolism, a blood clot from one part of your body is carried through your bloodstream to your brain where it causes a blockage in an artery. This blockage of blood flow to the brain can cause an ischemic stroke.

The expert team at the Stroke Center provides treatment for cerebral embolism.
