Background & Aims: Ischemic stroke is one of the leading causes of disability and death around the world. The results of various studies have shown that prevention is the most effective way to reduce stroke burden. Therefore, the present study was conducted with aim of evaluating the frequency of risk factors involved in ischemic stroke and its relationship with the involvement site and duration of hospitalization in the patients diagnosed with stroke in the Internal Neurology Ward of Imam Khomeini Hospital in Urmia.
Materials & Methods: In a descriptive study, 270 patients who had been diagnosed with ischemic stroke in Imam Khomeini Hospital of Urmia hospital were evaluated. A questionnaire was developed in which the patients' medical records and risk factors for ischemic stroke were recorded. The collected data were analyzed by SPSS19 software.
Results: 45.2% of the patients were male and 54.8% were female. The mean age of them was 67.07 years. 73% of patients had hypertension during hospitalization, 72.6% had history of hypertension, 45% had diabetes history, 43% had history of dyslipidemia, 40.9% were smokers, 18.3% had history of stroke, 18% had a history of using ocp, 29% had a history of heart disease and 10% had a family history. In terms of involvement site, 83.3% were in the anterior blood flow and 16.7% were in the posterior blood flow. The mean duration of hospitalization was 9.4 days. The mean lipid profile of patients was obtained as T. chol: 173, HDI: 39, LDI: 96, and Tg: 140.
Conclusion: Hypertension during hospitalization, history of hypertension, diabetes, smoking, and history of dyslipidemia are among the major risk factors for ischemic stroke.
