To make people understand importance of early recognition of symptoms of stroke, ways to prevent it
With an aim to make people understand the importance of early recognition of symptoms of stroke and ways to prevent it, Stroke and Neurovascular Intervention Foundation organised an interactive session recently.
Stroke and Neurovascular Intervention Foundation has been conducting various training programmes, national and International conferences, providing a platform for doctors to discuss the latest advancements for stroke management.
“Stroke was once considered to be a disease of the elderly population and this myth is gradually falling apart with a sharp rise in the number of stroke cases in patients aged less than 40 years of age. Apart from inherited and genetic causes, poor diet and lifestyle practices are the major reasons attributing to this burden. While creating awareness about the identification of symptoms for timely diagnosis and treatment can have favourable outcomes and save many lives, it is also necessary for the public to know the ways to prevent stroke. A healthy and balanced diet alone can reduce the chances of stroke by upto 80 per cent.” said Dr Vipul Gupta, Director – Neurointervention, Stroke and Neurovascular Intervention Foundation.
