OBJECTIVES There is increasing evidence that inflammation and hypercoagulability play an important role in the pathophysiology of acute ischaemic stroke. We examined the in-hospital prognostic value on mortality of C-reactive protein (CRP), tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), fibrinogen and D-dimer in middle-aged ischaemic stroke patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS We recruited 231 consecutive patients <66 years with acute ischaemic stroke. CRP, TNF-alpha, fibrinogen and D-dimer levels were… CONTINUE READING
