A stroke clogs the brain of blood. A heart attack does the same, but to the heart.

Actually, stroke can cause heart attacks.


The cause is vascular with the effect being shown in the heart in one case and the brain in the other


A stroke is a disruption of the blood supply to the brain can cause part of the brain not to function. A heart attack is an interruption of the blood supply to the heart due to for example, blockage of artery leading to the heart. Causes heart cells to die.


A heart attack occurs when blood flow to a part of the heart is blocked, usually by a blood clot. Without oxygenated blood, the heart muscle begins to die. A stroke is a brain attack, cutting off vital blood flow and oxygen to the brain. Stroke happens when a blood vessel feeding the brain gets clogged or bursts.

Heart attack means you have one of the blood vessels choked in your heart. This gives rise to some of the part of heart dead. In stroke you usually have the blood supply of the brain affected. That gives rise to paralysis of some part of your body, usually.


A heart attack clogs up the blood in the heart, while a stroke clogs up the blood in the brain. They are caused by the same thing, really, just in different areas of the body.


A stroke can not cause a heart attack. They both are similar. The stroke is caused by problems in the brain. Heart attacks are caused by clots or problems with the heart.


A stroke and a heart attack are very similar and is caused by not enough blood getting to the brain (stroke) or heart (heart attack). Both are deadly and both can result in permanent damage if someone survives.


One is a stroke: and the other is a heart attack I would like to add a note to the answer above: Technically, a thrombosis is a clot or blockage, and a coronary thrombosis is a clot affecting the heart -- but a heart attack is not the same thing, and is technically myocardial infarction. The clot usually, but does not always result in heart attack. Same with the cerebral thrombosis -- it is technically a clot that can cause a stroke. To me, the difference between a cerebral and coronary thrombosis is the location of the clot.


No, in a stroke, the symptoms often don't include any discomfort or pain and is more likely associated with losing feeling or the ability to move. Much of the time, a stroke only affects one side of the body.



A heart attack (myocardial infarction) is the result of a blockage in an artery which feeds the heart, so the heart becomes starved for oxygen.


No. I had an MI confirmed by elevated enzymes they told me I had a non Q wave heart attack. what is the difference between a regular heart attack and a non q wave heart attack?



A massive heart attack or possibly stroke


you get a heart attack or mini heart attack or mini stroke


An Angina is when you have extreme chest pain it is related to a probable heart attack. and a heart attack is when the heart looses its ability to circulate blood because of blocked artery or vein.


Myocardial infarction is also known as a heart attack. Strokes occur in the brain.


· Angina· Coronary heart disease· Heart arrhythmias -- an irregular heart rhythm· Transient ischemic attack(TIA, or "mini" stroke)· Heart attack· Stroke· Peripheral artery disease· High blood pressure.


The main difference between a heart attack (myocardial infarction) and a stroke (cerebrovascular accident) is the system of the body affected.With a heart attack, blood flow to a part of the heart is blocked, often as a result of a narrowing of the coronary arteries that supply blood to the heart. Without blood carrying oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscles, the muscle begins to die (infarct).With a stroke, the process is somewhat similar, except that a stroke affects the brain. During a stroke, the blood vessels that supply blood and oxygen to the brain become clogged or burst, which limits the flow of blood and oxygen to parts of the brain. Blood vessels that become clogged are referred to as "ischemic strokes" and blood vessels that rupture are termed "hemorrhagic strokes" (though hemorrhagic are much less common than the former).



he die from a heart attack or a stroke



he had a stroke in Washington dc
