Stroke and other cerebrovascular disease is the fourth most common cause of death in OECD countries, accounting for over 8% of all deaths on average (OECD, 2011a). Estimates suggest that it accounts for 2‐4% of health care expenditure and also significant costs outside of the health care system due to its impact on disability (OECD, 2003a). In ischemic stroke, representing about 85% of cases, the blood supply to a part of the brain is interrupted, leading to a necrosis of the affected part, while in hemorrhagic stroke, the rupture of a blood vessel causes bleeding into the brain, usually causing more widespread damage.
