In this episode of Sidelined we talk with interventional neurologist Dr. Dennys Reyes. We delve into the signs, symptoms and treatment of stroke, cerebral aneurysm and brain hemorrhage in reference to a trio of stories in professional sports involving neurological ailments. Less than two-years ago, it was widely reported the fastest man ever in the 200 and 400 meters, U.S. Olympic athlete Michael Johnson, suffered a transient ischemic attack or mini stroke. Unfortunately, last year former MMA fighter Katy Collins passed away from a cerebral aneurysm at the age of only 32-years-old and it’s reported former National Basketball Association (NBA) commissioner, David Stern, died on Jan. 1 of a brain hemorrhage he suffered in December of last year.
