Strokes are the fifth most common cause of death and one of the leading causes of disability in the United States. This disease affects the arteries around the brain and specifically occurs when a blood vessel ruptures and bleeds, or when blood supply to the brain is blocked. This type of rupture or blockage prevents blood and oxygen from reaching the brain, causing its tissues and cells to become damaged or die within mere minutes. Strokes fall under three separate categories, transient ischemic attack (TIA), ischemic stroke, and hemorrhagic stroke. The type of stroke a patient may have dramatically affects the treatment and recovery processes.
