DIFFERENT CHANGES IN ELECTROCARDIOGRAM IN CASES OF ACUTE CEREBROVASCULAR ACCIDENTS

Dr Pothula Rama Rao, Dr Prathap Bingi

Abstract :

Stroke is defined as a "neurological deficit of cereovascular cause that persists beyond 24 hours or is interrupted by death within 24 hours"[1] .CVA can be classified into two major categories- ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes.[2] About 87% are ischemic strokes and the rest being hemorrhagic in origin. studies have demonstrated the fact that primary neurologic abnormalities may produce ECG changes without any myocardial lesion. ECG changes affecting T waves, U wave,ST segment, QT interval and arrhythmias have been reported. These changes may resemble those of myocardial ischemia and myocardial infarction, leading to misinterpretation and delay in operative management of sub arachanoid hemorrhage[3]. There are evidences suggesting, that patients who had ECG changes following CVA had poor prognosis compared to who donít have changes in ECG. Approximately 2-6% of all CVA patients die from cardiac causes in first 3 months after ischemic stroke[4].
