Abstract

Objective
To investigate the correlation of main risk factors and cognitive-perceptual functions of stroke patients assessed with Mini-mental status examination (MMSE) and Motor-free visual perception test (MVPT) scores.


Method
Subjects were 41 stroke patients from 35 to 70 years of age. Data collection was done through chart review on risk factors of stroke including hypertension, diabetes mellitus, heart disease, hypercholesterolemia, and cigarette smoking. Three months after the onset of stroke, MMSE and MVPT were performed.


Results
The subjects with diabetes had significantly lower scores in MMSE (p<0.05) and MVPT (p<0.05) compared to those with nondiabetics. The subjects with left hemispheric lesion scored higher in MMSE than those with right hemispheric lesion (p<0.05).


Conclusion
Among the several risk factors, diabetes mellitus has significant relationship to cognitive and visual perceptual function in the stroke patients.
