An interruption or reduction in the supply of blood to the brain causes a cerebral stroke. This lack of supply results in the lack of oxygen or nutrients to the brain and leads to death of brain cells. Blood flow could also be affected as a result of a ruptured artery to the brain, or blockage.
Although it is a common medical issue, a healthy lifestyle can effectively prevent it.
Strokes are divided into three kinds namely ischemic Stroke, haemorrhagic stroke and transient ischemic attack (TIA). A cerebral stroke is an emergency that calls for immediate attention by a specialist.
