Ariel Sharon Suffered Massive Stroke, Cerebral Hemorrhage


Israeli PM Ariel Sharon on Wednesday suffered what doctors called a "significant stroke" and massive cerebral hemorrhage. Sharon was sedated and is on a respirator. Media reports the Israeli leader was paralyzed in his lower body.

The government declared Sharon's authority had been transferred to Vice Premier Ehud Olmert.

Title is redundant and sensationalist.

cerebral hemorrage = stroke, they aren't two different things.

The sensationalist bit is the "massive" term. The source said "significant" not "massive"

  I knew..  
something about that title wasn't quite right, but I couldn't quite figure it out..

  There are differences, Dedo...  
Otherwise all media reports wouldn´t speak of both. Stroke means a blood vessel becomes occluded and the blood supply to part of the brain is totally or partially blocked. Cerebral hemorrhage means that such a blood vessel in the brain ruptures and bleeds.

i just read in an article that he underwent 9 hours of surgery, had massive bleeding, in serious condition, and is now near death

*dramatic voice*

Then again... really, we're all close to death. Aren't we? *mad scientist cackle*

Disregard. No relevance here.

a cerebral hemorrhage is a type of stroke (hemorrhagic stroke to be precise), but not all strokes are cerebral hemorrhages

Kinda like how all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares.

Sharon had a stroke. The stroke caused bleeding in his brain. He therefore had a hemorrhagic stroke. He did not have both a stoke and a cerebral hemorrhage.

As for "Otherwise all media reports wouldn´t speak of both. "

Let me scoff quietly to myself at your faith in the general media to get terminology in matters of medicine, science, or anything technical, correct.
