This 20" x 26" examination-room anatomy poster explains and illustrates stroke, including the two main types: ischemic and hemorrhagic. For ischemic stroke (blockage), it shows common sites of plaque formation, formation of a thrombus and embolus. For hemorrhagic strokes (bleeding), it illustrates intracerebral hemorrhage and ateriovenous malformation (AVM). Depicted are the Circle of Willis with aneurysm and cross section of brain with subarachnoid hemorrhage, arterioles and microaneurysm. Understanding Stroke lists risk factors and common neurological deficits. Available in English or Spanish. May is National Stroke Awareness Month.
