Cerebrovascular Disease (Stroke)
Cerebrovascular disease, commonly referred to as stroke, occurs when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted (either from blockage or rupture of blood vessels), and brain tissue dies.
Patients experiencing stroke can be affected in a number of ways, including paralysis, loss of speech, loss of memory and, in severe cases, death.
UC’s faculty and physicians are internationally renowned specialists who play a leading role in providing acute stroke care and conducting basic and clinical research.
Working with the UC Comprehensive Stroke Center through the UC Neuroscience Institute, the UC Stroke Team and the surgical/interventional neurovascular program, UC specialists offer a comprehensive approach for stroke prevention and the treatment of transient ischemic attack (TIA), ischemic stroke, aneurysm, arteriovenous malformation and other cerebrovascular conditions.
