A stroke is an acute neurological injury that occurs when the blood supply to a part of brain is interrupted. Since the affected part of the brain no longer receives enough oxygen, brain cells can begin to die or become damaged; the local brain function can become impaired. Stroke is a medical emergency and can cause permanent neurological damage, and even death, if not promptly diagnosed and treated. A stroke is also called a Cerebrovascular Accident (CVA).
