In many cases, heart disease such as septal defects and patent foramen ovale are the potential causes of stroke. This condition happens, when the arteries to your brain are narrowed or blocked and blood does not reach your brain properly.
 If you are facing any symptoms of heart disease, then you should talk to your doctor or you can consult online with expertise of this field at a good clinic like www.Justsavelives.com and get some good helpful advice.
Since,  Within just a few minutes of a stroke, brain tissue begins to die, therefore before the condition gets critical, it is important to have the best possible treatment for it.
