Emotional disorders in patients with acute ischemic stroke

Full Text:


Most patients with prior ischemic stroke are observed to have depressive disorders and as a consequence the loss of usual lifestyle, interests,belief in recovery.
Objective: to study emotional disorders within the first 7 days after ischemic stroke and their association with the severity of the disease and the lateralization of an ischemic focus in 72 patients. 
Results and discussion. Patients with severe stroke were found to have maximum blood cortisol and insulin levels. There was a direct relationship of emotional-volutional disorders to the levels of cortisol and neurospecific enolase
