To screen for an aortic aneurysm, your doctor may recommend an imaging study to look at and measure the aorta.

Depending on the type of stroke, treatment may include medicines (such as tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) or anticoagulants/antiplatelets) and procedures (such as carotid endarterectomy or carotid artery angioplasty).
