Stroke and Aortic Dissection

A stroke arises when the supply of blood to the brain is either interrupted or reduced. When this happens, the brain does not get enough oxygen or nutrients, and brain cells start to die. On the basis of stoke, 25% of all ischemic strokes are cardioembolic strokes, and the source of emboli and clots are formed in the heart, dislodged in the heart and then travel to the brain. Of the 25% of ischemic strokes, 45% of those are due to atrial fibrillation. The 3rd leading source of death after cancer and heart disease is Stroke, so focusing on the epidemiology of stroke and risk factors. Stroke can be of different types. Aortic dissection arises when an injury to the innermost layer of the aorta permits blood to flow between the layers of the aortic wall, forcing the layers apart and aortic dissection is a serious condition in which there is a tear in the wall of the major artery carrying blood out of the heart (aorta).
