1 Citation (Scopus)

Abstract

A recent study has found that one in six people who are independent at 3 months after stroke deteriorate and need assistance by 12 months. Older women with comorbidities, and patients not given appropriate secondary stroke prevention were most at risk. Anticipation and prevention of deterioration could help reduce the later burden of stroke.
