Abstract

Present hospital based prospective study was conducted in Sawai Man Singh Hospital in Jaipur district of Rajasthan state (west part of India) during the year 2008-2009 to know functional outcome of stroke correlation with Scandinavian stroke scale score. Assessment severity of stroke on Scandinavian stroke scale (SSS) score and functional disability on Barthel Index (BI) were neasured. Out of 200 included cases 11 were dropped out and it was found that incidence of stroke in young individual is significantly less than older individual. Hypertension was most important risk factor. Ratio of R: U=1.38: 1, M: F=1.74: 1 and infarction: hemorrhage= 1.32: 1. Metabolic syndrome was a nonsignificant risk factor for women as well as men (p>0.005). The correlation between the SSS and on functionally outcome was significant (p<0.005).
