Abstract

Stroke accounts for 10% of the world's deaths and causes severe long-term disabilities.  Twenty-six million people world wide experience a stroke each year. Two-thirds represents cerebral ischemia. Age, a history of stroke or transient ischemic attack, hypertension, diabetes and heart failure characterize a stroke. Early detection with a proper treatment could improve clinical outcomes in such cases.
