Methods: Cross-sectional hospital-based study in neurology ward of SCB MCH, Cuttack, Odisha in 2019-20.

Results: The mean age 60.93±12.8, males are more affected, 60-69 years were more affected, 76% were ischemic strokes, 85% cases weakness of limbs reported, hypertension, diabetes, alcoholism, smoking, dyslipidemia were major risk factors. Hypertension and smoking found to be highly significant in case of young stroke patients.

Conclusions: Major modifiable risk factors were hypertension (63.3%) followed by alcohol intake 53.9%.
