Overall, strokes can be divided into two main types. 

The first type, known as a hemorrhagic stroke, happens when an artery in the brain bleeds. This kind of stroke may be caused by an aneurysm (a bubble in the artery wall) that bursts or by a condition called arterial venous malformation, a tangle of abnormal blood vessels in the brain that may bleed due to the fragility of the vessel structure.
