Plasma S100A12 is associated with functional outcome after ischemic stroke: Research for Biomarkers in Ischemic Stroke.
Ischemic stroke is accompanied by an inflammatory response, which exacerbates brain injury and deteriorates functional outcome. S100A12 is expressed abundantly in granulocytes, and has been implicated to play an important role on inflammatory reactio

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 temporal dynamics of plasma fractalkine levels in ischemic stroke: association with clinical severity and outcome.
The chemokine fractalkine (CX3CL1, FKN) is involved in neural-microglial interactions and is regarded as neuroprotective according to several in vivo studies of inflammatory and degenerative states of the brain. Recently, an association with outcome

Early neurological stability predicts adverse outcome after acute ischemic stroke.
Background Deterioration in the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) in the early days after stroke is associated with progressive infarction, brain edema, and/or hemorrhage, leading to worse outcome. Aims We sought to determine whether

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

Time to Neurological Deterioration in Ischemic Stroke.
Neurological deterioration (ND) is common, with nearly one-half of ND patients deteriorating within the first 24 to 48 hours of stroke. The timing of ND with respect to ND etiology and reversibility has not been investigated.

Timing of neurological improvement after acute ischemic stroke and functional outcome.
The time of neurological improvement (TNI) after acute ischemic stroke may have a predictive value.

[Ischemic stroke--diagnosis and treatment].
Management of ischemic stroke is targeted on four therapeutic objectives: limitation of neurological deficit, prevention of earyl stroke recurrence, protection against complications, and secondary prevention. Intravenous thrombolysis within 4.5h of s

Minor ischemic stroke: Triaging, disposition, and outcome.
Two-thirds of patients with stroke have mild deficits. The optimal triaging of these patients remains unclear. It is crucial to stratify patients based on who needs inpatient vs outpatient evaluation in a cost-effective manner.
