Description: 
Impaired autonomic function is common in the acute poststroke phase but little is known about the longer term effects, particularly in older people. This study sought to determine if autonomic function is impaired after stroke recovery in older patients. This is a cross-sectional case-control study comparing autonomic function in 76 nondemented stroke patients with 70 community-living controls aged older than 75 years.
