Cerebrovascular Disease and Stroke
  Follow Topic   Edit Search

Stroke is a medical emergency that requires rapid diagnosis and treatment. The hallmark of stroke is the abrupt interruption of cerebral blood flow to a specific brain region, resulting in neurologic deficits. Fluctuation of functional deficits after stroke onset or a brief deficit known as transient ischemic attack (TIA) suggests tissue at risk for infarction that may be rescued by reestablishing perfusion. More than 750,000 strokes occur per year in the United States (one stroke every 40 seconds in the US population), and it is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States (one death every 4 minutes).  Source: The Washington Manual
