Factors influencing outcome in acute ischaemic stroke

30 January 2008

In the thesis, three main issues are examined. The relation between the BI and the mRS, which are the two most frequently used outcome measures in acute stroke. The prognostic value of hyperglycaemia in acute ischaemic stroke was examined, taking the different stroke subtypes (lacunar versus non-lacunar) into account. Thirdly, we investigated various prognostic variables for and safety aspects of rtPA treatment and performed several subgroup-analyses in patients who received rtPA.
