"Time is brain": This expression is very often heard in English-speaking countries in connection with a stroke - "time is brain". This is exactly what emergency treatment of a stroke is all about: a few minutes often decide whether brain cells whose blood supply has been interrupted die or not. As a result, strokes are the most common cause of permanent disability in adults.

The term "stroke" refers to a loss of function in an area of the brain caused by arteriosclerosis of the cerebral arteries (also known colloquially as "arteriosclerosis"). A stroke due to bleeding caused by a burst blood vessel is less common.

In Switzerland, around 15,000 people suffer a stroke every year. All age groups can be affected, but the risk increases with age. A healthy lifestyle reduces the likelihood of a stroke - patients with high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and smokers are more at risk.

The Stroke Center at the University Hospital Basel is one of nine certified stroke centers in Switzerland and offers patients immediate and comprehensive treatment. A coordinated assessment and treatment concept enables all patients to be cared for in accordance with specific quality requirements.
