Specifically excluded from the definition of stroke are Transient Ischemic Attacks and attacks of Vertebrobasilar Ischemia.
Stroke means a definite diagnosis of an acute cerebrovascular event caused byintra-cranial thrombosis, infarction of brain tissue, haemorrhage and embolism from an extra-cranial source resulting in neurological deficit. The diagnosis of Stroke must be based on changes seen in a CT scan or MRI and must be confirmed by a Neurologist.
