Cerebrovascular Accidents (CVAs), also known as “stroke” are a result of reduction, interruption, or blockage of blood supply to your brain. Blood provides essential nutrients and oxygen to your brain and interruption of cerebral blood flow leads to very quick brain tissue damage.
There are two main causes of stroke: (1) ischemic stroke, caused by a blocked blood vessel and (2) hemorrhagic stroke, caused by a broken or leaky blood vessel. It is also possible to experience a transient ischemic attack (TIA), which is a temporary disruption of blood flow to the brain. All these forms of stroke can leave residual cognitive , personality, behavioral, and/or emotional dysfunction that need to be charted and addressed by a neuropsychological evaluation.
Neuropsychological assessment after CVA is an essential to create a treatment and rehabilitation plan, to make patient-specific prevention recommendations, and to provide decisions regarding ability to engage in work, academics and other activities of daily living.
