Stroke During Lobectomy

A stroke during lobectomy is typically the result of a blocked artery in the brain. The blockage stops blood and oxygen from getting to part of your brain and causes part of the brain tissue to die. It is important to tell you doctor before your surgery if you have ever had a stroke.

Stroke During Lobectomy: An Overview

Strokes are another possible complication of lobectomy.
A stroke can be caused by a blocked artery in your brain. The blockage, which may be a blood clot, a piece of a fatty deposit called "plaque," or something else, stops blood and oxygen from getting to part of your brain. This causes a part of the brain tissue to die.
A stroke can change your body in many different ways. For example, stroke symptoms might include problems with moving or speaking. And sometimes, a stroke can be fatal. Stroke treatment will depend on where it happened and how serious it was.
Some people are more likely to have a stroke than others, so please talk to your doctor if you have ever had symptoms of a stroke, or have been told that you had a stroke in the past. If there is a problem or increased risk for a stroke, your healthcare provider can talk with you about what is best for your situation.
