Tóm tắt

This is a cross-sectional study conducted on 137 post-stroke patients aged ≥ 60 years old treated at the National Geriatric Hospital to explore some factors related to domains of comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA). The components of CGA assessed were medical status (nutrition; urinary incontinence, frailty, visual and hearing ability), functional status (Barthel index, instrumental activity daily living, risk of fall) and neuropsychological status (cognition and depression). Patients ≥ 70 years old had a prevalence of malnutrition/risk of malnutrition, cognitive impairment, urinary incontinence, and frailty syndrome significantly higher than patients under 70 years old (p<0.05). Post-stroke patients with hemiplegia had significantly higher dependency, cognitive impairment, depression, urinary incontinence, frailty syndrome, and hearing loss than patients without hemiplegia (p<0.05). There was no statistically significant difference between gender, stroke classification, post-stroke duration, and the number of strokes and domains of CGA in older post-stroke patients. In summary, this study showed that advanced age and hemiplegia were significantly associated with some CGA domains.
