What is Cerebro Vascular Disease?

The word cerebrovascular is made up of two parts – "cerebro" which refers to the large part of the brain, and "vascular" which means arteries and veins. Together, the word cerebrovascular refers to blood flow in the brain. Cerebrovascular disease (CVD) refers to any abnormality in the brain caused by problems with the blood vessels. The term covers many conditions including stroke.
