Stroke/AVC

A stroke certainly is 'un AVC', but as the order of initials indicates 'un AVC' cannot be 'un accident cardio-vasculaire'; it is 'un accident vasculaire crérébral'

Hi Lucien, 

Indeed the acronym order of the letters should be respected and it should be as you suggest, however, this is how your will hear them called -

accidents cardio-vasculaires

Bonne Continuation!
