Low risk of stroke in hospitalised Covid-19 patients: Study


Team Udayavani, Jul 28, 2020, 12:15 PM IST

A new paper published in, the American Heart Association’s journal, shows a low risk of stroke in patients hospitalised for Covid-19

The study, published in the journal Stroke, contradicts initial reports that suggested a significant risk of stroke in patients hospitalised with Covid-19.

In   order to evaluate the risk and incidence of stroke in Covid-19 hospitalised patients, researchers analysed data from 844 Covid-19 patients between March and May.

Researchers found that 2.4 per cent of patients hospitalised for Covid-19 had an ischemic stroke which is the most common type of stroke, typically caused by a blood clot in the brain.

Also, majority of these stroke patients had existing risk factors, such as high blood pressure and a history of diabetes

Researchers claim that stroke in hospitalised Covid-19 patients are likely tied to existing conditions, and not the sole consequence of the virus.
