After hypertension and diabetes, cardiac disease is a significant risk factor for stroke. Cardiac diseases predominantly cardiac failure that can be systolic dysfunction or diastolic dysfunction are the causes of thrombotic artheroscerotic strokes around the globe. It is certainly vital to assess the patient's risk of mortality and morbidity during the incidence of acute ischaemic stroke. Diastolic dysfunction in stroke patients during hospital ICU stay is at increased risk of mortality. This research assesses mortality risk in diastolic dysfunction patients with stroke.
