Timely and considerate care of the arterial and venous systems.
A stroke occurs when there is a disruption of blood flow to the brain. Most strokes occur from a blockage within the blood vessel. The underlying condition for this type of obstruction is the development of fatty deposits lining the vessel walls. This condition is called atherosclerosis.
TIAs, transient ischemic attacks, are minor or warning strokes. In a TIA, conditions indicating a stroke are present and the typical stroke warning signs develop. However, the obstruction (blood clot) occurs for a short time and tends to resolve itself through normal mechanisms.
