• With 140,000 new cases each year in France (one every 4 minutes), strokes are the leading cause of death in women, the third in men, the leading cause of acquired physical disability in adults, and the 2nd cause of dementia.
• Strokes are a heterogeneous group of diseases requiring various treatments. These need to be adapted to the different types of stroke, and, for each type of stroke, to many different causes. There may be several treatment options for each of these causes.
