Stroke is the most common cause of neurological impairment in elderly patients. It results from lack of blood supply to the brain or brain hemorrhagic and results in motor dysfunction, spasticity, cognitive impairment, speech and swallowing impairment and memory loss.
The neurological damage is irreversible which often results in lifelong disability. There are limited treatment options and even these involve symptomatic treatment only.
