Stroke

Collective term for cerebrovascular accidents ((ICD-10: I60-I69). This includes subarachnoid heamorrhage (I60) which is outside the brain and intracerebral haemorrhage (I61-I62) (inside the brain), cerebral infarction (I63) and stroke, not specified as haemorrhage or infarction (I64). Around 40 percent of all strokes listed as cause of death remain unspecified.
