Cerebrovascular Diseases

 

The first cause of acquired disability in the world  

 
Stroke is the first cause of disability, the second cause of mental decline (dementia) and the third most common cause of death, and account for 50% of emergency cases in hospitals world-wide.
 
This is a brain tissue necrosis due either to a lack of blood supply due to a blood vessel failure without the ability to take this supply adjacent vessels (ischemic stroke, 85%) or to cerebral hemorrhage due to rupture of a larger vessel resulting in tissue destruction (hemorrhagic stroke, 15%).
