What Is Stroke?

A stroke may also be referred to as a cerebrovascular event, characterized by the rapid loss of brain function after blood supply to the brain is obstructed.

What Causes Stroke?

A stroke may be caused by a blocked artery, known as an ischemic stroke, or a burst or leaking blood vessel, called a hemorrhagic stroke. A temporary disruption of blood supply to the brain is called a transient ischemic attack, or TIA.
