Using the post mortem examination of 454 cases of strokes in Dnepropetrovsk hospital N 2, the heliogeophysical risk factors of death was found, which are specific for strokes localized in left/right cerebral hemispheres. Deaths of men because of strokes localized in right cerebral hemisphere usually occur when geomagnetic activity is rising. Decreased geomagnetic activity is usually observed before deaths of men because of strokes localized in left hemisphere. Otherwise, in women an increased geomagnetic activity forestalls the deaths from strokes in left hemisphere. Independently from sex of the patients, a positive polarity of interplanetary magnetic field dominates before the time of deaths because of strokes localized in left cerebral hemisphere, and vice-versa. Possibly, the detected differences in the heliogeophysical risk factors for the strokes with different localization are explained by the modulation of the functional activity of cerebral hemispheres by the specific of current heliogeophysical conditions.

Keywords: heliogeophysical factors, geomagnetic activity,interplanetary magnetic field, cerebral strokes.
