About 80-85% of the strokes are ischaemic, with the rest primarily haemorrhagic. Even among patients with ischaemic stroke, there is much heterogeneity in aetiological and pathophysiological factors contributing to the disease. Atherosclerosis of the major cerebral vessels probably accounts for most ischaemic strokes, either as thrombotic occlusion at the site of atherosclerotic plaques or atherogenic embolism. Embolism from a source in the heart (cardioembolic stroke) and lipohyalinosis of the penetrating small cerebral vessels (lacunar stroke) account for a substantial proportion of ischaemic strokes.
