Unfortunately, stroke is all too common. Nearly 1 million new strokes are diagnosed in the United States each year. And this means that complications of stroke--even if rare--may also be common. One such complication is hemorrhagic transformation. This week, Dr. Ava Liberman reviews a clinical case of hemorrhage following ischemic stroke.

Produced by James E Siegler. Music by Ghost, Kevin McLeod, and Scott Holmes. Voiceover by David Manly. BrainWaves' podcasts and online content are intended for medical education only and should not be used for clinical decision-making.
