OBJECTIVE To ascertain the risk of a new vascular event (NVE) occurring after ischemic stroke and evaluate differences in risk based on stroke subtype. METHODS This was a prospective observational study of consecutive patients with nonfatal stroke recruited at a single tertiary stroke center with follow-up ranging from 2 to 5 years (average, 31 ± 15.9(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE In patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), stroke risk stratification schemes have been developed to optimize antithrombotic treatment. The CHADS(2) score is frequently used but has limitations. The CHA(2) DS(2) -VASc score improves risk prediction. Our objectives are to describe CHADS(2) and CHA(2) DS(2) -VASc score distribution in a(More)
OBJECTIVE Little information is available about sex-related differences in intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). This is a prospective observational study to describe the sex differences in demographics, vascular risk factors, stroke care, and outcomes in primary ICH. METHODS BasicMar is a hospital-based registry of all stroke patients admitted to a single(More)
BACKGROUND Hyperglycemia is a marker of poor outcome in acute ischemic stroke (IS) patients. We aimed at evaluating the effect of combined HbA1c and first glucose measurement values on 3-month mortality prediction. METHODS In a prospective analysis, 1,317 first-ever IS patients with HbA1c values were classified by first glycemia value (<155, 155-199, ≥200(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the usefulness of hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) determinations during the acute ischemic stroke (IS) to identify undiagnosed glucose disturbances in a prospective series of patients with first-ever IS. METHODS Retrospective analysis of a prospective series of first-ever IS patients. Patients with previous diagnosis of diabetes mellitus(More)
