Abstract

Objective: Patients with stroke may experience epileptic seizures as acute phase (usually defined as the first 15 days) or late phase complications. Risk factors are young age, male sex, cortical involvement and hemorrhagic transformation. Our aim was to investigate the etiologic factors and to determine the high-risk groups for the 1 year seizure rate of patients who are followed up in our clinic with a diagnosis of acute ischemic stroke.
