Cerebral vascular attacks (CVAs), or strokes, remain a leading cause of serious long-term disability and death worldwide. The purpose of this research is not only to evaluate the effectiveness of stroke therapies already in place, but also to compare their success to up-and-coming treatments. The hypothesis of this research is that while the therapies we use today have shown great amounts of success over the years they have been implemented, newer therapies will have the potential to eclipse them and prove to be more successful.
