According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 175,000 strokes occur each year in the United States, killing 140,000 Americans. It is a leading cause of long-term disability and costs the U.S. healthcare system an estimated $34 billion annually in health care services, treatment and lost time at work.
