Cerebrovascular accident or stroke is one of the most frequent reasons for urgent neurological assistance, caused by a cerebral circulation disorder.
Every minute that passes, the chances of recovery are reduced.
It is one of the most important causes of permanent disability in adults and the second cause of death (the first in women). In addition, it can cause sequelae that significantly affect quality of life.
For all this, it is vital to go to a hospital early to start treatment as soon as possible and take advantage of the brain's neuroplasticity, which makes it easier to recover the affected brain functions in those first few hours.
