Abstract

Patients were consecutively enrolled in a cross-sectional study to determine the severity of depressive symptoms and the rate of treated depression in a patient population returning to a stroke outpatient service during a 10-week period for a regular check-up examination after their stroke. Of the 143 stroke patients, 119 fulfilled the inclusion criteria. The 13-item Beck Depression Inventory was used to screen for depressive symptoms. The score was at least 5 in 53, 10 or above in 26, and 15 or above in 11 of patients. Severity of depressive symptoms did not depend on gender, age, time elapsed from stroke, or the site of the cerebral lesion. Most patients with considerable depressive symptoms did not receive antidepressant medication at the time of the screening.
