Cerebrovascular disease

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Cerebrovascular disease refers to the group of conditions that lead to neurological deficits secondary to impairment of circulation of blood in the brain. If the brain is deprived of blood flow for longer than a few seconds, brain cells can die causing permanent brain damage leading to neurological deficits. In this chapter we will use the word “stroke” interchangeably with “cerebrovascular disease.”
