Ninety percent of cardiac emboli obstruct cerebral blood vessels and causedneurological deficit. Cardioembolic stroke may be due to abnormalities in cardiac walls,rhythm, valve, or function. Stroke patients with cardiac abnormalities have poor prognosis. Thisretrospective descriptive study was done in May-June 2017. We collected 103 medical recordsof stroke patients from Department of Neurology, Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital duringJanuary 2015- March 2016.

Among subjects, 41.75% had cardiac rhythmabnormalities, 29.13% had cardiac wall abnormalities, 14.56% had cardiac valveabnormalities, and 14.56% had cardiac function abnormalities.
