BACKGROUND There is growing evidence that inflammation plays an important role in atherogenesis. Previous studies have shown that the concentration of peripheral inflammatory markers, particularly C-reactive protein (CRP), strongly correlates with stroke severity and independently predicts mortality and recurrent vascular events in patients with acute ischemic stroke. The aim of this study was to clarify the relationship between inflammatory markers and stroke severity by means of volumetric… CONTINUE READING
