BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is increasingly recognized as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease and stroke. Our aim was to examine the association between estimated glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and stroke outcome and to assess whether CKD and its severity affect stroke outcome in a large cohort of unselected patients with acute stroke. METHODS We examined the association between baseline estimated GFR and CKD and 1-year outcomes in 821 consecutive… CONTINUE READING
