Stroke

   Stroke is the second leading cause of death world wide. There are two main types of stroke. The most common is when a blood clot blocks an artery that carries blood to the brain. This is caused by a Cerebral Thrombosis or Corebral Embolism. The second most common stroke is a bleed. This is when a blood vessel breakes in the brain. It is called a Hemorrhagic Stroke.
