Thrombotic Stroke

In a thrombotic stroke, a large, localized arterial plaque (which is the result of the buildup of fatty deposits and cholesterol) impedes blood flow by blocking an artery. As a result, the brain region receiving blood from this artery no longer gets sufficient oxygen and the affected cells die. This form of stroke is referred to as thrombotic stroke because the blocking clot is a thrombus.
