The Global Costs of Stroke

The human and economic costs of stroke are staggering.
Improving stroke recovery outcomes by even 1% would save the U.S. an estimated $1.9 B annually and $7.2 B worldwide!
What all authorities appear to agree on however is that the first three months after a stroke are the most important for recovery and when patients will see the most improvement; and that whether a full recovery is possible depends on a variety of factors.
