A North Carolina study team has found that the rates of depression at 3 and 12 months after hospitalization appear to be similar in stroke and transient ischemic attack (TIA) patients. Among the findings:
|Proportional Frequency of Depression at 3 Months|
|Proportional Frequency of Depression at 12 Months|
|Rate of Newly Identified Depression Between Months 3 and 12|
|Antidepressant Use in Those With Persistent Depression|
