Stroke - What it is

Stroke conditions and treatments

A stroke occurs when a part of the brain gets damaged due to interruption of its blood supply. The symptoms and signs of a stroke depend on the size and location of the damaged area.

In a “transient ischemic attack (TIA),” the symptoms of stroke disappear completely within 24 hours.
