Smoking After Stroke Triples Risk of Death Within Year: Study
Date:8/31/2012

sooner patients started smoking again, the greater their risk of death within a year. For example, those who resumed smoking within 10 days of leaving the hospital were five times more likely to die within a year than those who didn't resume smoking.

"The results of this study suggest that health-care providers should take smoking cessation interventions more seriously, as recommended treatments are not making their way into practice," Colivicchi said. "A successful program to help stroke patients quit smoking should take a comprehensive long-term approach, including individual counseling, post-discharge support and pharmacological treatment."

Because this study was presented at a medical meeting, the data and conclusions should be viewed as preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.

While the study uncovered an association between smoking in stroke patients and death within one year, it did not prove a cause and effect relationship.
