BACKGROUND The utility of clinical measurements of impairments in glomerular barrier or filtration rate among hospitalized stroke patients without known chronic kidney disease (CKD) has not been well studied. We determined whether various indices of CKD would predict discharge outcomes in persons hospitalized with a recent ischemic stroke. METHODS Presence of proteinuria and estimated low glomerular filtration rate (GFR) <60 ml/min per 1.73 m(2) on admission were assessed in consecutive… CONTINUE READING
