Abstract: 

Background: Stroke is the most common neurologic disorder and the third leading cause of death in many countries. It has two types: ischemic and hemorrhagic. The latter has more complications and is lethal. Some risk factors of stroke include diabetes, hypertension, smoking and hyperlipidemia.
Purpose: This cross-sectional study was conducted to compare the frequencies of risk factors in patients with ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, hospitalized at Hazrat-e-Rasoul Hospital in 2007.
Methods: 100 patients were randomly selected in an every other manner for each type of stroke and assessed as well as compared in terms of most significant risk factors. A form for recording age, sex, type of stroke and related risk factors was used to collect data from medical records.
Results: 74% and 26% of the patients suffered from ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke respectively. Mean ages of the first and second group were 68.3±16.56 and 61.9±13.69. The frequencies of risk factor in ischemic stroke were 64.86% for diabetes, 56.75% for hypertension, 21.62% for smoking and 13.51% for hyperlipidemia. The corresponding figures for hemorrhagic stroke were 65.38%, 61.53%, 3.8% and 3.8%. A significant difference was found between the frequencies of smoking (P=0.048) and hyperlipidemia (P=0.000) in ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke.
Conclusion: With respect to high frequencies of the above risk factors, controlling them in a better and more accurate manner, increasing public awareness and modifying life style are valuable in primary and secondary prevention of stroke and its complications.
