Stroke - Definition


Definition


A stroke is a condition that occurs in the aftermath of a problem in the arteries of the brain. Two types of stroke can be distinguished: in an ischemic stroke, an artery is clogged, very frequently due to a blood clot, while in a hemorrhagic stroke, there is a rupture of the artery and arterial hypertension is the most common cause. The symptoms of stroke are represented by the sudden onset of neurological symptoms such as movement disorders or paralysis affecting only one side of the body, and sudden deformation of the mouth with difficulty speaking. In the presence of a suspected stroke, medical care with a brain imaging scan or MRI should be implemented quickly.
