Cerebrovascular refers to blood flow in the brain (cerebro means brain, and the term vascular refers to the blood vessels and arteries of the circulatory system). Just as the cardiovascular system (heart and its blood vessels and arteries) can be affected by disease, so can the brain's arteries and blood vessels.
Conditions such as stroke, cerebral aneurysm and arteriovenous malformation are brain emergencies, and for something so serious, Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest and Lehigh Valley Hospital-Muhlenberg are leading centers for your care. Both feature a Stroke Rapid Response Team that has full-time physician coverage and is supported by a care team that includes emergency services, neurology, neuroradiology and nursing.
Our neurologists, neurosurgeons, interventional radiologists and experienced neuroscience professionals are prepared to help you through a difficult medical emergency and put you on the path to recovery.
