Brief Summary:
Our study aimed to examine a possible association between Restless legs syndrome and cerebrovascular disease, by examining patients during hospitalization for acute stroke or transient ischemic attack, in a matched case-control design.

Condition or disease
Restless Legs Syndrome Stroke Transient Ischemic Attack

Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 447 participants
Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
Official Title: Restless Legs Syndrome in Stroke Patients
Study Start Date : January 2008
Primary Completion Date : December 2008
Study Completion Date : December 2008

Group/Cohort
Patients with stroke or transient ischemic attack
Interview regarding restless legs syndrome
Subjects without stroke or transient ischemic attack
Interview regarding restless legs syndrome



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Prevalence of Restless legs syndrome in patients with stroke or Transient ischemic attack vs. prevalence in controls. [ Time Frame: At time of interview ]
    The frequency (prevalence) of restless leg syndrome (RLS) in patients who have suffered stroke or TIA will be compared to that of subjects who have not suffered stroke or TIA (controls). The two groups will be stratified with regard to age and gender. Statistical comparison will be made by univariate analyses and by multivariate logistic regression analyses (which will include cerebrovascular risk factors besides stroke or TIA).
