Abstract

To investigate frequency and type of complications in patients with stroke during hospitalization in Riga East University Hospital Neurovascular department from 2016 to 2020 year. Data were retrospectively obtained from Riga East University Hospital local registry from 2016 to 2020 year. 4915 patients with stroke were analyzed and compared with data from literature and researches from other countries. Median age of patients was around 76 (IQR 66-83) years. Median hospitalization time in patients with transient ischemic attack (TIA) was 5 (IQR 4-7) days, in patients with ischemic stroke (IS) – 8 (IQR 6-9) days, in patients with hemorrhagic stroke (HS) – 7 (IQR 5-9) days. Majority of patients had no complications (84.9%). Patients with TIA had less complications (3.9%) comparing to patients with IS and HS that had most complications (16.2% and 14.5% respectively). The most common complications were: pneumonia (5.1%), heart failure decompensation (4.9%), severe kidney failure (2.2%) and urinary tract infection (1.7%). No one patient with TIA had infectious complications. The total mortality rate among all patients was 13.7% (the mortality rate in patients with TIA was 0%, in patients with IS – 12.8%, in patients with HS – 30.9%). HS accounting for a disproportionately large proportion of mortality among stroke patients and hospitalization time correlate with complications frequency which coincides with other research and literature data.
