What is a stroke?
A stroke is caused by a clot or vessel rupture, preventing blood flow to parts of the brain.
The effects of the stroke depend on what part of the brain was affected and the part of the body controlled by that part of the brain. Common effects of stroke are paralysis on either or both sides of the body, speech or vision problems, behaviors, or memory loss. Those who have had one stroke have a higher risk of additional strokes.
