Brain Stroke: Types, Symptoms, Prevention & Treatment

A stroke or a brain attack damages the part of the brain either when the brain’s specific blood vessel bursts or blockage of the blood supply, causing the brain cells to die due to lack of oxygen. Stroke can cause everlasting brain damage, long-term disability, or death.
