Introduction: Stroke is sixth leading cause of death in the world. Economically taking care of stroke patients and rehabilitating costs more than those with acute and complicated diseases. Today, recurrent stroke is one of the leading causes of death in those survived stroke previously. Diagnosing the causes of early recurrence would help us promoting secondary prevention and accurately selecting the high risk patients in stroke recurrence. Methodology: In this article, as a cross-sectional descriptive one, is tried to study, extract the demographic data and length of hospitalization of about 600 stroke patients hospitalized in Tabriz Imam Reza Hospital during 2016. Eventually, abstracted data analyzed by spss15.0.0. Result: In this study 617 stroke patients, 403 men and 214 women, were examined. The age average was 62.63 and the average number of hospital days was 19.10. Among 617 patients studied, 22(19men and 3 women) had recurrent stroke. Average age of these patients was 61 and the average of hospital days was 14. Conclusion: Generally, It is worth mentioning that because of data distortion in patients with recurrent stroke, it was impossible to compare those patients with the primitive society.
