ABSTRACT
This article presents a study which reveals that recurrent stroke rate was higher than coronary heart disease (CHD) rate in the first year after stroke but similar after the first year. In this study, 546 patients 65 years of age were diagnosed with a first hospitalized nonfatal ischemic stroke between 1989 and July 1, 2001. At median 3.2-year follow-up after initial ischemic stroke, recurrent stroke incidence was higher than CHD incidence in the first year. After the first year, recurrent stroke and CHD event rates were similar. Patients with cardioembolic stroke had the highest rates of recurrent stroke, CHD incidence, and all-cause mortality; patients with indeterminate stroke had the lowest CHD event rates; and patients with lacunar stroke had the lowest rates of recurrent stroke and all-cause mortality.
