Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States and the leading cause of long-term disability. But stroke is largely preventable. Knowing your individual risk factors is essential to preventing stroke.

Stroke Facts

  • Each year 795,000 people experience a new or recurrent stroke - that's an average of 1 every 40 seconds.
  • There are two broad categories of stroke: those caused by a blockage of blood flow and those caused by bleeding in to the brain.
  • The blockage of a blood vessel in the brain or neck, called ischemic stroke, is the most frequent cause of stroke and accounts for approximately 80% of strokes.
  • Risk factors for stroke include: age, gender, race, family history of stroke, high blood pressure, cigarette smoking, heart disease, high cholesterol, physical inactivity and diabetes.
