Does Rosuvastatin play any role in the management of stroke?
37 Views
1 Answer
1 year ago
Rosuvastatin is found to be useful in preventing new episodes of ischemic stroke in the brain. Ischemic stroke occurs when there is a blockage of the blood vessel of the brain decreasing blood flow to a particular area of the brain. This blockage occurs due to plaque formation (deposition in the arteries where cholesterol combines with fat, calcium, and fibrin). Rosuvastatin decreases the chances of plaque formation by lowering the cholesterol levels in the body and hence lowers the risk of new episodes of stroke. It is not routinely prescribed for the prevention of hemorrhagic stroke.
