The burden of neurological disorders has increased globally over last decade. According to GBD Neurology collaborator study, neurological disorders ranked as the leading cause of disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs, 276 million) and the second leading cause of death (9.0 million, comprising of 16.5% of global deaths) in 2016. COVID-19, increased stress level, rapid demographic and epidemiological transitions, unhealthy lifestyle, and aging, these lead to an increase in the global burden of neurological disease. The goal of this issue is to identify the causes of neurovascular disease, as well as the epidemiological characteristics, high-risk populations, and hopefully address the neurovascular disease burden on a larger scale.
