Stroke culminates into 6.2 million deaths annually and is thereby a leading cause of disability and death worldwide. In patients undergoing noncardiac, nonneurological surgery, perioperative stroke can eventuate into a catastropic aftermath with almost eight-fold rise in mortality. In cardiac, neurological, and carotid surgery, stroke rate accounts to be high (2.2%–5.2%) and is a significant instigator of morbidity and mortality as well. These facts kindle interest to review the predictive parameters, preventive measures, and all the possibilities in the management and protection against perioperative stroke.
