The most severe form of disease is a brain stroke. The incidence of stroke in the Ukraine is about 100-120 thousand. Cases. 40-50% of patients die within the first year after a stroke, and 80% of survivors remain disabled, dependent on others. The main risk factors for stroke are hypertension, especially untreated, blood drops. Stroke threatens to increase both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. The sharp decline in blood pressure can also cause stroke, especially in the elderly. Next importance of a risk factor for stroke is atherosclerosis. It is proved that the leading role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and dyslipidemia plays, in particular, increased low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. The incidence of atherosclerosis is directly proportional to cholesterol in the blood. This article describes a case of clinical practice - driving patient after acute ischemic attack. The method of examination and the basic tactics of treatment and rehabilitation of patients with this pathology. Background rehabilitation of patients with stroke is increasing year by year, due to the fact that stroke is the second-third place among the main causes of disability in the population.
