Abstract


Background: Stroke is a devastating public health problem worldwide, considered as the third leading cause of death in developed countries, and the leading cause of disability among adults. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT), including pulmonary embolism (PE) as a sequel, is a serious complication of various medical conditions including stroke. The purpose of this study was to determine frequency of deep vein thrombosis among patients presented with stroke.

Materials and methods: This study was descriptive (cross-sectional) study, conducted in the Department of Neurology, Lady Reading Hospital, Peshawar over 6 months. In the study a total of 196 patients were observed. Base line investigations were done and ultrasound was carried out to diagnose deep vein thrombosis. All the laboratory investigations and ultrasound were done by single experience pathologist and sonologist having minimum of five years of experience respectively. Observation and examination was done by neurologist who was not aware about the study and data was recorded in a predesigned proforma. To control confounders and bias in the study results, strict exclusion criteria had been followed.

Results: In this study mean age was 63 years with standard deviation ± 28.34. Forty two percent patients were male and 58% patients were female. More over 8% patients had deep vein thrombosis.

Conclusion:Our study concludes that the frequency of deep vein thrombosis was 8% among patients presented with stroke.

Keywords
