Étude de la qualité de vie des patients, et de leurs aidants naturels, après un accident vasculaire cérébral hospitalisés en unité neurovasculaire au centre hospitalier d'Annecy

Abstract : INTRODUCTION : 130 000 people are, each year, touched by a stroke, which means their relatives too. This medical event, in many ways, influence their quality of life. METHODS : We worked on 494 patients who were hospitalised for a cerebral stroke in Annecy neurovascular's department from the 1/11/08 to the 31/O3/10. We asked each of them and their relatives to fill the Sickness Impact Profile 65. RESULTS : We could only obtain answers from 224 patients and 149 relatives. We couldn't see any significant difference concerning the quality of life for the relatives beside for the mental health. Depression touches 30% of the helping relatives of patients who had a stroke with after effects. The quality of life was seriously deteriorated for the patients who had a stroke with after effects compared to the ones without. We couldn't see any differences in the under groups of patients without after effects. For the patients, the quality of life is seriously deteriorated by physical handicap and depression which concerned 30% of all the patients. DISCUSSION : We can explain those results by the patients' good health before the stroke. Nevertheless we can think that a stroke may deteriorate the quality of life even if we don't have a significant difference between transient ischemic attack and stroke without after effects.
