In brief: Yes
A cerebrovascular accident (cva) means that a blood vessel in the brain has had something happen to it and a stroke (cva).
Blood vessels are arteries and veins. Although we usually think of a cva as being due to a blocked artery or a bleeding artery in the brain, a vein can have a thrombosis and become blocked and cause a cva too.

In brief: Yes
Thrombosis of the venous channels in the brain is an uncommon cause of cerebral infarction relative to arterial disease, but it is an important consideration because of its potential morbidity.
