Many strokes can be prevented by identifying the risk factors which predispose to stroke or transient impairment of blood flow to the brain. Once Identified, appropriate treatment can be given which should reduce the risk by an appreciable degree. An orderly and careful evaluation of an individual can thus play an important role in stroke prevention.
