Thyroid-stimulating hormone, white matter hyperintensities, and functional outcome in acute ischemic stroke patients.
Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) concentrations are frequently altered in acute ischemic stroke patients. It is becoming increasingly apparent that various hormones in the hypothalamus-pituitary-thyroid axis may be associated with functional stroke

Impact of MCA stenosis on the early outcome in acute ischemic stroke patients.
Asians have higher frequency of intracranial arterial stenosis. The present study aimed to compare the clinical features and outcomes of ischemic stroke patients with and without middle cerebral artery (MCA) stenosis, assessed by transcranial sonogra

Impact of Baseline Ischemia on Outcome in Older Patients Undergoing Endovascular Therapy for Acute Ischemic Stroke.
The outcome for older stroke patients who undergo endovascular revascularization remains unsatisfactory. We aimed to determine the effect of the extent of baseline ischemia on outcome according to age, testing the hypothesis that the restorative capa

Neopterin as a Predictor of Functional Outcome and Mortality in Chinese Patients with Acute Ischemic Stroke.
Immune responses and inflammation play an important role in the pathogenesis of ischemic stroke. We therefore evaluated the 6-month prognostic value of early measurement of serum neopterin levels, a marker of inflammation and immune system activation

Arterial stiffness and functional outcome in acute ischemic stroke.
Arterial stiffness is a common change associated with aging and can be evaluated by measuring pulse wave velocity (PWV) between sites in the arterial tree, with the stiffer artery having the higher PWV. Arterial stiffness is associated with the risk

Dyslipidemia and outcome in patients with acute ischemic stroke.
To study the relationship between dyslipidemia and outcome in patients with acute ischemic stroke.

Correlation between serum neuron specific enolase and functional neurological outcome in patients of acute ischemic stroke.
The use of biomarkers to predict stroke prognosis is gaining particular attention nowadays. Neuron specific enolase (NSE), which is a dimeric isoenzyme of the glycolytic enzyme enolase and is found mainly in the neurons is one such biomarker.

The impact of intravenous thrombolysis on outcome of patients with acute ischemic stroke after 90 years old.
Age increases the risk of mortality and poor prognosis following stroke. The benefit of intravenous thrombolysis in very old patients remains uncertain. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of thrombolysis in very old pati

Predictors of Outcome in Patients Presenting with Acute Ischemic Stroke and Mild Stroke Scale Scores.
Although National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) is a known predictor of outcome in acute ischemic stroke, there are other factors like age, ambulatory status, and ability to swallow that may be predictors of outcome but are not assessed b

The Impact of Myocardial Infarction vs. Pneumonia on Outcome in Acute Ischemic Stroke.
The aim of this study was to examine the association between MI and PNA in the setting of acute ischemic stroke and patient outcome. Eligible patients were identified from a prospectively collected stroke registry and included if transthoracic echoca
