A Stroke is among the most serious of Neurological Disorders. A stroke is also called a Cerebrovascular Attack/Disorder or a ‘brain attack’. This is usually caused by non-genetic factors like an accident that causes internal hemorrhaging and occlusion of blood within the blood vessels of the brain.

This is a serious condition wherein the brain suffers a major interruption in the blood supply. This state of reduced blood supply is called ischemia and that is why a stroke is also called a brain ischemic stroke. This is among the few Neurological Disorders wherein there is no established neuropathy or the presence of any confusing, underlying causes.

A stroke is rather easy to identify since it induces threatening symptoms like loss of vision or a sudden reduction in consciousness, with the patients often slipping into coma. This is also amongst the hardest to treat of Neurological Disorders. The worst kind of stroke is that caused by blood vessel damage, called a Hemorrhagic Stroke. The lack of blood means that the brain is deprived of nutrients and oxygen which means that the brain or a part of it loses its functionality. A stroke is also among the few Neurological Disorders that can be reversed through surgical intervention. With the help of a brain surgery, supported by brain imaging studies, the occlusion in blood vessels can be alleviated and a hemorrhagic stroke can be resolved.
