The value of C-reactive protein (CRP) as a prognostic tool in stroke patients is unclear. The aim of this study is to explore the prognostic impact of CRP levels assessed at different time points on functional outcome in a large cohort of thrombolysed acute stroke patients. All thrombolysed stroke patients admitted to our department were entered in an open,(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies examining social work interventions in stroke often lack information on content, methods and timing over different phases of care including acute hospital, rehabilitation and out-patient care. This limits our ability to evaluate the impact of social work in multidisciplinary stroke care. We aimed to quantify social-work-related(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE In acute stroke, the DWI-FLAIR mismatch allows for the allocation of patients to the thrombolysis window (<4.5 hours). FLAIR-lesions, however, may be challenging to assess. In comparison, DWI may be a useful bio-marker owing to high lesion contrast. We investigated the performance of a relative DWI signal intensity (rSI) threshold to(More)
