Serum calcium as prognosticator in ischemic stroke.


BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Calcium (Ca(2+)) plays a role in the cellular and molecular pathways of ischemic neuronal death. We evaluated the impact of both early and delayed Ca(2+) levels on clinical outcomes from acute ischemic stroke. METHODS The relations between blood calcium level obtained early (<4.5 hours), and delayed (72 to 96 hours) after ischemic… (More)
