Hemostatic function and progressing ischemic stroke: D-dimer predicts early clinical progression.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Early clinical progression of ischemic stroke is common and is associated with increased risk of death and dependency. We hypothesized that activation of the coagulation system is an important contributor in some cases of deterioration. We aimed to characterize alterations in circulating hemostatic markers in patients with progressing… (More)
