    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Acute cerebral infarction (stroke): Stroke, also called cerebrovascular (CVA) stroke, occurs when there is a decreased blood supply to the brain due to the presence of a blood clot or leakage of blood vessels. The decrease in blood supply leads to a decrease in oxygen and nutrients resulting in the death of brain cells. This condition leads to paralysis of the face, arm, or leg, slurred speech, headache, and difficulty walking.

    Head trauma: A head injury (head trauma) is any type of injury to the brain, skull, or scalp. This might range from a minor bump or bruise to a severe brain injury. Concussions, skull fractures, and scalp injuries are examples of common head injuries. The effects and therapies vary widely depending on what caused the head trauma and its severity.
