Stroke

Stroke or cerebrovascular accident (CVA) is the most common cause of brain damage. More specifically, a stroke is the rapid loss of brain function due to the disruption of blood supply to the brain. In turn, a significantly reduced amount of oxygen and glucose flowing to the brain results in the death of brain cells and brain damage. This often results in speech, movement and memory impairment.
