The term stroke refers to a neurologic deficit with sudden or rapid onset due to hemorrhagic or ischemic cerebrovascular disease, which lasts 24 hours or more. A deficit due to ischemia that lasts less than 24 hours is a transient ischemic attack (TIA).

Hemiplegia is a condition that is characterized by paralysis of one half of the body, usually due to a brain lesion on the opposite side. It may be congenital (cerebral palsy) or acquired later in.
