Abstract

Cerebrovascular attack (CVA) is not only one of the leading causes of death, but also a disabling disease which is becoming increasingly frequent in the younger age groups. Thus, it affects people in the productive period of life, when rehabilitation and vocational reorientation constitute a most crucial issue. This adds to the importance of CVA prevention, which is very difficult to carry out. For this purpose it is necessary to identify all factors which might contribute to the development of transitory ischaemic attacks (TIA) and CVA.
