What is Stroke and What are the Risk Factors?

All over the world stroke are 5th leading cause of death and one of the commonest causes of disability. A stroke happens when a certain part of the brain does not receive an adequate blood supply. Symptoms of stroke depend upon which part of the brain is affected and the extent of its damage. Strokes are gross of 2 types, ischemic and hemorrhagic. Ischemic stroke happens when some blood vessel lumen is blocked with a blood clot. A hemorrhagic stroke happens due to bleeding in the brain, hampering the function of certain parts of the brain.

There are several risk factors for stroke, some being controllable and others that are beyond our control. Let’s review this in the following chart. If we pay adequate attention to controllable risk factors, we can prevent stroke and its consequences to a large extent.
