Abstract

Stroke is the leading cause of death and disability yet preventive aspect specially recurrence of ischemic stroke is given less importance, especially in Indian literature. We conducted a prospective study on 297 patients from September 2013 to April 2015. We observed 22 recurrent events accounting to 7.5%. Important contributory factors were large hemispheric stroke, athero-thrombotic stroke and anti-platelet non-adherence. Patient education regarding anti-platelet adherence and other modifiable risk factors optimal care is must and so is the lifestyle modification.
