World Stroke Day 2007 focuses on hypertension's relationship to stroke

(Dallas), (Sept. 14, 2007) - The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association are joining organizations across the world on a unified message about the most common risk factor for stroke: high blood pressure. On October 9 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, as part of the Joint World Stroke Congress, experts from around the world will discuss how to fight high blood pressure and stroke.

"Stroke is a preventable catastrophe and hypertension is its most common and treatable risk factor," said Vladimir Hachinski, M.D., FRCPC, D.Sc., Chair, Working Group, World Stroke Day, First Vice-President, World Federation of Neurology.

In the United States, stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of severe, long-term disability. Worldwide, stroke is second to ischemic heart disease as a cause of death.

High blood pressure affects about 72 million people in the United States - -
