incidence of cerebrovascular disease increases with age and the number of strokes is projected to increase as the
elderly population grows.A stroke is the second leading cause of death worldwide. Some of the Indian studies have
shown a stroke prevalence of 471.58/100000 population.
OBJECTIVE: To study the clinical presentation, risk factors, neurological presentation, pattern of brain strokes, areas of
brain affected as per CT/MRI Brain scan findings in a newly admitted patients in GNRC Institute of Medical Sciences,
North Guwahati,Assam.
METHODS: This is a prospective study included all new patients with stroke admitted in ICU and Ward under Neurology
Department of GNRC institute of Medical Sciences ,North Guwahati,Assam, from 1st August,2018 to 31st July ,2019.
RESULTS: The cerebrovascular strokes are more common in males (64.4%) than females (35.6%). Most common age
group was 58-67 years (28.29%). Most common clinical feature was hemiplegia (71.21%). Most common risk factor was
Hypertension (89.51%) followed by diabetes mellitus(51.70%) . Most common type of stroke was haemorrhagic
(60.24%) followed by ischaemic (39.75%). In stroke infarct most common involved areas were parietal (13.65%). In
hemorrhagic stroke most common site was basal ganglia (21.95%) followed by thalamus (10.97%).
