1. A person who makes strokes in certain games, esp. polo;2. (a motor vehicle with) an engine adapted to give high power and speed by grinding the crankshaft throws off centre in order to increase piston displacement
Motor/Transmission : A motor modified to allow longer piston travel by re-positioning of the piston rod on the crank Stutter Bumps : Racing : Similar to the Braking Bumps, but are purposely made as an obstacle section on a track Sub-frame : Chassis : The smaller portion of the frame located behind the motor and below the seat
Disease caused by damage to blood vessels in the brain Depending on the part of the brain affected, a stroke can cause a person to lose the ability to speak or move a part of the body such as an arm or a leg Usually only one side of the body is affected See also: Cerebrovascular disease
-A medical event that results from sudden blockage of the blood supply to the brain The blockage may destroy brain tissue, thereby producing paralysis, loss of speech, loss of consciousness, or other serious abnormalities of the nervous system, on one side of the body
1 (also "shot") the act of swinging a club with the intention of striking the ball 2 the qualitative aspect of the swing (most frequently associated only with putting) Example: It took him 5 strokes to get the ball in the hole from the greenside bunker 2 The grocery clerk has an exceptional putting stroke
One of a series of beats or movements against a resisting medium, by means of which movement through or upon it is accomplished; as, the stroke of a bird's wing in flying, or an oar in rowing, of a skater, swimmer, etc
(sports) the act of swinging or striking at a ball with a club or racket or bat or cue or hand; "it took two strokes to get out of the bunker"; "a good shot require good balance and tempo"; "he left me an almost impossible shot"
emphasis If someone does not do a stroke of work, they are very lazy and do no work at all. I never did a stroke of work at college. or cerebrovascular accident (CVA) Sudden impairment of brain function due to hypoxia, which may cause death of brain tissue. Hypertension, atherosclerosis, smoking, high cholesterol, diabetes, old age, atrial fibrillation, and genetic defects are risk factors. Strokes due to thrombosis (the most common cause), embolism, or arterial spasm, which cause ischemia (reduced blood supply), must be distinguished from those due to hemorrhage (bleeding), which are usually severe and often fatal. Depending on its site in the brain, a stroke's effects may include aphasia, ataxia, local paralysis, and/or disorders of one or more senses. A massive stroke can produce one-sided paralysis, inability to speak, coma, or death within hours or days. Anticoagulants can arrest strokes caused by clots but worsen those caused by bleeding. If the cause is closure of the major artery to the brain, surgery may clear or bypass the obstruction. Rehabilitation and speech therapy should begin within two days to retain and restore as much function as possible, since survivors may live many more years. Transient ischemic attacks ("mini strokes"), with short-term loss of function, result from blockage of blood flow to small areas. They tend to recur and may worsen, leading to multi-infarct dementia or stroke
also known as a cerebrovascular accident (CVA); caused by a lack of blood to the brain, resulting in the sudden loss of speech, language, or the ability to move a body part, and, if severe enough, death
If something happens at a stroke or in one stroke, it happens suddenly and completely because of one single action. The disease wiped out 40 million rabbits at a stroke How can Britain reduce its prison population in one stroke?
The maximum distance the piston travels from the top of the cylinder (at TDC) to the bottom of the cylinder (at BDC), measured in inches or millimeters The stroke is determined by the design of the crankshaft (the length of the stroke arm)
If someone has a stroke, a blood vessel in their brain bursts or becomes blocked, which may kill them or make them unable to move one side of their body. He had a minor stroke in 1987, which left him partly paralysed
damage to part of the brain that happens when the blood vessels supplying that part are blocked, such as when the blood vessels are clogged with fats (a condition sometimes called hardening of the arteries)
A sudden decrease or stopping of blood flow in an artery of the brain sufficient to cause damage to the brain tissue These occur infrequently following cardiopulmonary bypass (open heart operations) and most likely result from obstruction of a small blood vessel or blood vessels by clots or debris, or from air embolization Children and young adults with persistent cyanosis (right to left shunting through atrial or ventricular septal defects) are at continued higher risk from embolism from intravenous catheters Other Articles in This Section Associated Conditions Cath Lab Procedures Imaging Techniques Medical Personnel /Services New Strategies / Techniques Surgical Complications Surgical Procedures Your feedback is very important!

Loss of muscle function, vision, sensation, or speech resulting from brain cell damage caused by either an insufficient supply of blood to part of the brain, often due to blockage or narrowing of the arteries supplying blood to the brain, or a hemorrhage The hemorrhage may involve bleeding into the brain itself or the space around the brain
Sudden, severe blockage or rupture of a blood vessel in the brain, cutting off blood supply to a portion of the brain and resulting in loss of consciousness, paralysis, or other symptoms depending on what part of the brain is affected
as of a steam engine or a pump, in which these parts have a reciprocating motion; as, the forward stroke of a piston; also, the entire distance passed through, as by a piston, in such a movement; as, the piston is at half stroke
A "stroke" is the forward movement of the club made with the intention of fairly striking at and moving the ball, but if a player checks his downswing voluntarily before it reaches the ball he is deemed not to have made a stroke
A powerful or sudden effort by which something is done, produced, or accomplished; also, something done or accomplished by such an effort; as, a stroke of genius; a stroke of business; a master stroke of policy
a light touch with the hands a single complete movement (sports) the act of swinging or striking at a ball with a club or racket or bat or cue or hand; "it took two strokes to get out of the bunker"; "a good shot require good balance and tempo"; "he left me an almost impossible shot"
Also called a "brain attack" and happens when brain cells die because of inadequate blood flow 20% of cases are a hemorrhage in the brain caused by a rupture or leakage from a blood vessel 80% of cases are also know as a "schemic stroke", or the formation of a blood clot in a vessel supplying blood to the brain
any one of the repeated movements of the limbs and body used for locomotion in swimming or rowing a mark made by a writing implement (as in cursive writing) the oarsman nearest the stern of the shell who sets the pace for the rest of the crew a sudden loss of consciousness resulting when the rupture or occlusion of a blood vessel leads to oxygen lack in the brain treat gingerly or carefully; "You have to stroke the boss"
Blood flowing under too much pressure through arteries can damage them Over time, this damage can increase the risk of plaque forming in arteries An artery that supplies oxygen-rich blood to the heart or the brain can become completely blocked Without oxygen, heart or brain tissue begins to die The result is called a stroke
If you stroke someone or something, you move your hand slowly and gently over them. Carla, curled up on the sofa, was smoking a cigarette and stroking her cat She walked forward and embraced him and stroked his tousled white hair
