The lack of blood flow to the  portion of the brain fed by the artery causes a stroke.

Stroke is the second most cause of death occurring in the world, affecting nearly 15 million people each year.

A third of that number die of the disease, and causes symptoms constantly for one third of the other, and most cause of ischemic stroke is a disease of urbanization called atherosclerosis, Valcrain infected with the disease and rule, where you stand and attached impurities on the inner wall of the arteries, thereby preventing the flow of blood. The key factors that have a significant impact on the stroke are: smoking, obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol in the blood.

Also happen dizziness or a sudden fall and unjustified, and also happens to sudden imbalance in the severity of vision or bilateral vision (see the thing twice), not necessarily that the symptoms appear all together at one time. Therefore, in many cases some significant symptoms of this disease in the beginning, which can cause serious consequences.

The growth of the plaque afraid to inner wall of the artery. The cause of this surface is the systematic disruption in the flow of blood around the sediment - just a stone in a river under way - component of thrombus.
Usually on a temporary basis, indicating minor symptoms that result from the disruption in the flow of blood to the ischemic heart in passing. During the episode, has the body releases enzymes that dissolve quickly clot and restore blood flows at normal.

- Haemorrhagic stroke, hemorrhagic stroke
Being one of the stroke when an artery in the brain burst and leaking blood. Amin Diniyev said blood bleeding from the artery to the surrounding tissue leading to damage. While cut off the blood cells that are responsible for leakage or rupture of the damaged part.
The vascular tumor from one of the reasons responsible for hemorrhagic stroke. With advancing age, may develop swelling is located in a weak point within the blood vessel wall. It should be noted that some vascular tumors resulting from the alert and hereditary. However, the most common cause of hemorrhagic stroke is high blood pressure.
In fact, haemorrhagic stroke is less common than ischemic stroke, but the mortality rate high. The statistics indicate that 50% of people with hemorrhagic stroke die, this figure falls to 20% in cases of ischemic stroke. As for the cases of stroke among young adults in general are hemorrhagic
