It standarizes therapeutic prottocols and diminishes the nocious effect of complications and lowers mortality, Vascular surgery of ischemic and hemorrhagic diseases may exert a more benefitial and early effect in these units. The stroke Unit is a centre for preparing specialized personal in which new preventive, therapeutic and medical surgical research methods are developed.
