Background: Cerebrovascular Accident (CVA) is the second cause of death and disability in the world. Heart failure can co-occur with CVA and increases the risk of death and disability in patients.
Objectives: This study aimed to evaluate the prevalence of heart failure in patients with ischemic stroke.
Materials & Methods: In this cross-sectional study, the information of patients with ischemic stroke was collected in 2016 from their files. They were referred to the Emergency Department of Poursina Hospital. Statistical analysis of data was performed by using descriptive statistical methods. Estimation of mean and frequency was done by SPSS v. 22.
Results: A total of 291 patients were recruited in the study. Also, 157 patients (54%) were male, and 134 (46%) were female. The Mean±SD age of patients was 61.68 (12.98) years. Systolic heart
failure prevalence was 59.8%, and diastolic heart failure was 65.7%.
Based on the findings, more than half of the patients with ischemic stroke also develop heart failure. Therefore, it is recommended that the patient be evaluated and treated for heart failure when faced with ischemic stroke.
