What is a Stroke?

A stroke, also known as a cerebrovascular accident (CVA), is damage to the brain tissue due to a disruption in the blood supply to the brain. This disruption may be caused by ischemia or hemorrhage. An average of 700,000 Americans are affected by a stroke each year. The majority of these individual survive but with various complications.
Types of Stroke
Ischemic - caused by either blockage of a blood vessel via thrombosis or arterial embolism.
Hemorrhagic - caused by bleeding of blood vessels of the brain, either directly into the brain parenchyma or into the subarachnoid space surrounding brain tissue.
 
Stroke Symptoms Include
Sudden loss of vision, balance, coordination, consciousness, or speech. Ultimately, symptoms of stroke vary depending on the type of stroke and which area of the brain is affected.

A Stroke may lead to a wide range of short- or long-term issues:
  • Cognitive Function (attention and memory)
  • Motor function (extremity weakness/paralysis, coordination, balance)
  • Sensation (hearing, vision, touch)
  • Emotion (depression, aggression, impulse control, personality changes)
