Dr. Bennett Machanic answered

Specializes in Neurology

Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the usa, and the most common cause of long-term disability. Rate of death is highly dependent on size, location, and duration of decreased blood flow, and too many variables to be specific, as each case varies.
