Abstract
To verify the net effect of seizures after stroke on the use of in-hospital health care resources.
Consecutive patients with first-ever stroke were admitted to the stroke unit of a Moscow hospital and followed prospectively until death or discharge.

Resources consumed included length of hospital stay, admission to the intensive care unit (ICU), diagnostic tests, medical consultations and treatments. Cost estimates were based on the Russian National Health Service perspective.
The sample comprised 30 patients with in-hospital seizures and 70 matched controls. Patients dying in hospital were 15 of 30 (50%) versus 4 of 70 (5.7%) (p
