The purpose of our study was to determine the incidence of stroke, case-fatality rate and disability at 1 year in the Valley of Aosta (Italy) in the years 2004 and 2005. All suspected strokes occurring between January 1, 2004, and December 31, 2005, in the resident population of the Valley of Aosta were identified according to the WHO criteria for stroke(More)
BACKGROUND Increased C-reactive protein (CRP) is a known predictor of vascular events in asymptomatic individuals and stroke patients. Only a few studies included transient ischaemic attack (TIA) patients. We assessed CRP levels in addition to traditional risk factors in a cohort of patients with TIA to examine the relationship of these parameters to the(More)
Background. There is scant population-based information regarding predictors of stroke severity and long-term mortality for first-ever ischemic strokes. The aims of this study were to determine the characteristics of patients who initially presented with first-ever ischemic stroke and to identify predictors of severity and long-term mortality. Methods. Data(More)
OBJECTIVES We investigated the relationship between C-reactive protein (CRP)-values in the acute phase of stroke and the risk of further fatal and non-fatal ischemic events. MATERIALS AND METHODS We analysed 462 consecutive incident ischemic strokes. Patients were divided into two subgroups on the basis of a CRP cut-off level of 9 mg/l. Primary end points(More)
