Cerebrovascular disorders and stroke

Cerebrovascular disease is a severe, common and expensive disorder. It is third most frequent cause of death and leading cause of adult disability.  Of the 750,000 people suffer stroke annually 170,000 will die due to stroke.

The most common forms of cerebrovascular disease are cerebral thrombosis (40% of cases) and cerebral embolism (30%), followed by cerebral haemorrhage. Ischemia or hemorrhage are the by-products of cerebrovascular disease, manifest as sudden, focal neurological deficits related to specific vascular territories of the central nervous system.

Most patients with cerebrovascular disease have significant atherosclerosis, predisposed by one or more risk factors such as hypertensionheart diseasediabetes mellitus, smoking, hyperlipidemia, and family history of vascular disease.
