BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE This study aimed to investigate the association between plasma adiponectin levels and 5-year survival after first-ever ischemic stroke. METHODS Plasma adiponectin measured within 24 hours after first-ever ischemic stroke was related to 5-year outcome. The Kaplan-Meier technique was applied in survival analysis, and the Cox proportional hazards model was used to evaluate the relationship between risk factors and prognosis. RESULTS The probabilities of death were 92.8… CONTINUE READING
