Background: We assessed the incidence and determinants of aphasia attributable to first-ever acute stroke. We also investigated early and long-term mortality and 1-year dependence in post-stroke patients.

The presence of aphasia was independently associated with increasing age (OR: 1.19 per 10-year… Expand
