Cardiac arrest due to ventricular malign arrythmia is one of the most important causes of mortality during acute stroke. In most clinical and experimental studies; it is reported that prolonged ventricular de-repolarisation intervals may predispose to malign ventricular arrythmia. In this study, eleven intracerebral hemorrhage (IH) and thirtytwo cerebral infarction (CI) patients were recorded with a paper speed of 50 mm per second and standardisationof 2 mV a standard 12 leads ECG on first and seventh days of stroke attack. The durations of ventricular repolarisation parameters (QT, JT, QTc and JTc) and repolarisation dispersion parameters (QTd, JTd, QTc-d and JTc-d) were calculated in the standard leads. There was no statistical signficance in ventricular de-repolarisation parameters of IH patients. However; in CI patients; there was significant increase on seventh day values of QT, JT, QTc and JTc intervals according to first day values (p<0.05). Dispersion values were statistically nonsignificant between two groups. When subgroups of stroke analysed, patients in CI had a significantly longer values of QT, JT, QTc and JTc intervals on seventh day than those of IH (p<0.05). The result of this study suggest that CI patients should be more carefully evaluated for cerebrogenic cardiac arrythmia.

Keywords: Cerebrovascular disease, ventricular de-repolarisation parameters, electrocardiography.
