Methods: According to the occurrences of depression, 253 aphasic stroke patients were divided into depression group(n=157) and control group(n=96). The Barthel score(BI),American National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale(NIHSS), stroke aphasic depression questionnaire- hospital version(SADQ-H), Eysenck Personality Questionnaire(EPQ), perceived social support scale(PSSS) were used to evaluate all the patients.

Single factor analysis showed that the depression after aphasic stroke was mainly affected by gender, education, income, living conditions, vascular risk factors, complications, the types of aphasia, aphasia, BI, NIHSS scores, EPQ scores, and PSSS scores. Multivariate Logistic regression(forward) analysis revealed that depression after strokes was correlated with female gender, cardiovascular risk factors, complications, aphasia, BI, NIHSS score.
