Cerebrovascular diseases (CVD) are pathologies caused by the primary or secondary damage of one or more arteries supplying the brain. Our study aims to create a link between the modifiable risk factors, the affected vascular territory and the clinical manifestation of CVD in patients from our geographical area. Our study proposes the retrospective analysis of a group of 70 patients diagnosed with ischemic stroke with spontaneous hemorrhagic transformation over a period of five years, between April 1, 2015 and April 1, 2018, admitted in the 1st Neurology Clinic, Prof. Dr. Nicolae Oblu Clinical Emergency Hospital, Iasi, Romania. The pathology of strokes is determined by risk factors and comorbidities, which have a clear demographic pattern. The existence of a correlation between demographic risk factors of CVD and the clinical manifestation allows for the individualization of a clinical examination protocol leading to a rapid diagnosis.
