The Relationship between C-Reactive Protein Level and Discharge Outcome in Patients with Acute Ischemic Stroke.

Previous studies showed that C-reactive protein (CRP), an inflammatory marker, was associated with stroke severity and long-term outcome. However, the...

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

Relationship between the lesion location of acute ischemic stroke and early depressive symptoms in Japanese patients.
Approximately one-third of stroke survivors suffer from post-stroke depression (PSD) in the acute or chronic stages. The presence of PSD in the acute stage after stroke is reportedly associated with poor patient prognosis; therefore, early recognitio

Relationship between augmentation index and acute ischemic stroke subtype.
The aim of the present study was to explore the relationship between augmentation index (AIx) and vascular risk factors according to stroke subtypes. Patients were eligible for this study if they experienced their first ischemic stroke within the pre

The Relationship of Serum S100B Levels with Infarction Size and Clinical Outcome in Acute Ischemic Stroke Patients.
S100B protein, which helps nerve development and differentiation, is produced by astrocytes and can be detected in peripheral circulation after brain damage. In this study, we aimed to investigate the relationship between the serum S100B protein leve

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

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.

Redox status in acute ischemic stroke: correlation with clinical outcome.
Connection between oxidative stress and clinical outcome in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) has been poorly investigated. This study was aimed to assess redox state (through measurement of oxidative stress markers) of patients with acute ischemic stroke

Intravenous Tissue Plasminogen Activator Improves the Outcome in Very Elderly Korean Patients with Acute Ischemic Stroke.
In a recent pooled analysis of randomized clinical trials (RCTs), intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (TPA) improves the outcome in patients aged ≥80 years. However, it is uncertain whether the findings are applicable to clinical practice in Asi

Predicting discharge mortality after acute ischemic stroke using balanced data.
Several models have been developed to predict stroke outcomes (e.g., stroke mortality, patient dependence, etc.) in recent decades. However, there is little discussion regarding the problem of between-class imbalance in stroke datasets, which leads t

Relationship between hospital volume and early outcomes in acute ischemic stroke patients treated with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator.
There is controversy whether the annual number of acute ischemic stroke patients receiving stroke thrombolysis per hospital (hospital volume) is associated with outcomes in these patients.
