The patient's arrival at a hospital within the first 6 hours of the onset of the stroke is essential to reduce complications by 25-30%.

The diagnosis of cardiovascular accident (stroke) is based on an assessment by a specialist and, above all, the performance of neuroimaging tests ( brain scanner  and  magnetic resonance imaging ),  echodoppler of supra-aortic trunks  and transcranial doppler.

The carotid study allows diagnosing whether the cause has been the formation of a thrombus in the blood vessels that has interrupted blood flow and, therefore, assessing more specific preventive treatments, such as carotid endarterectomy or endovascular therapy.
