Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability and is the third largest cause of death, ranking just behind heart disease and cancer. In the United States, the annual occurrence of stroke is conservatively estimated at more than 700,000 annually. The anticipated direct and indirect costs of ischemic stroke in the United States have risen from $29 billion in 1990 to $58 billion in 2006.

After a stroke, there is a short window of opportunity for potential treatment with "clot-busting" medicine that reduces disability. That's why it's critical that stroke victims are evaluated and treated quickly and that everyone recognizes the typical stroke warning signs and symptoms.
