Stroke is a type of cardiovascular disease. It affects the arteries leading to and within the
brain. A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is
either blocked by a clot or bursts. When that happens, part of the brain cannot get the
blood (and oxygen) it needs, so it starts to die.
