What’s the difference between a heart attack and stroke?

A heart attack occurs when blood flow to a part of the heart is blocked, usually by a blood clot. Without oxygenated blood, the heart muscle begins to die. A stroke is a brain attack, cutting off vital blood flow and oxygen to the brain. Stroke happens when a blood vessel feeding the brain gets clogged or bursts. 

Astrological combinations for heart attack.

Heart trouble combinations as per jatak saradeep:

(1) Aspect of Saturn on moon or Saturn in dagdha rashi from sun( The sign that does not belong to sun or does not have its  nakshatras).
(2) Sixth lord if not under the aspect of Jupiter and is in dagdha rashi and nakshtra from malefic.
(3) Malefic in 6th triggers heart trouble due to vat trouble.
(4) Mars, Saturn and Jupiter in 4th indicates a wound on heart area or heart trouble.

The Leo/Aquarius axis, the 5th/11th house axis and malefic therein. Sign Sagittarius for arterial system and Jupiter as the lord of the sign. Sign cancer is also important here in this equation of heart attack.
Leo / Aquarius: The Circulatory Axis

Body Parts:  heart, arteries, veins, peripheral vascular system, legs, calves, spinal column, thoracic spine, sympathetic nervous system
Leo / Aquarius is the Circulatory Axis, and involves all manner of heart, circulatory and cardiovascular pathologies, like heart disease, hardening of the arteries, poor venous return, varicose veins, strokes, apoplexy and infarctions.  Leo is the heart and core of the circulatory system, whereas Aquarius is its periphery.  Between them, they shuttle the blood back and forth.

Heart attack – The most common cause of a heart attack is sudden narrowing or blockage of a coronary artery, which blocks oxygen to the heart. This can happen when plaque in the coronary artery breaks and a blood clot forms in the artery. Plaque is a buildup of cholesterol, white blood cells, calcium, and other substances in the walls of arteries. Plaques are covered by a fibrous cap. If a sudden surge in blood pressure occurs, if the artery suddenly constricts, or if something else such as inflammation is present, the fibrous cap can tear or rupture. The body tries to repair the tear-much as it does to stop the bleeding from a cut on the skin-by forming a blood clot over it. The blood clot can completely block blood flow through the coronary artery to the heart muscle. This will cause a heart attack.(information gathered from WEB MD).

Here seat of disease cannot be established by any of the methods, as all methods indicate the seat to be above neck it may be possible that due to anxiety and excessive worrying nature the disease could have started from the head and brain itself. The 6th lord in ascendant is under considerable influence from gulik, Mars through, Rahu and Jupiter. So the influence of 4th and 5th lords coupled by bad transit of Saturn and Rahu/Ketu eventually brought in the heart attack that proved fatal.
