Abstract

MARTINEZ-RUBIO, Carlos F.  and  BAYONA-ORTIZ, Hernán F.. Factors related to an adverse outcome for stroke in a Bogota hospital. Case-control study. Acta Neurol Colomb. [online]. 2018, vol.34, n.2, pp.115-122. ISSN 0120-8748.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22379/24224022199.

OBJECTIVES:

Determining risk factors for adverse outcome among acute ischemic stroke patients.

METHODS:

Retrospective case-control study. We compared two groups of patients: the first one with bad outcome after ischemic stroke (Modified Ranking Scale >3) and the second one with good outcome (Modified Ranking Scale <2) to find the risk factors that contributed to the complications. The secondary outcome observed was the in-hospital mortality risk factors. Statistics: univariate and multivariate analysis was made adjusted to age and severity using NIHSS and logistic regression.

RESULTS:

High blood pressure, atrial fibrillation, cardioembolic etiology and thrombolysis were identified as risk factors for bad outcome. The rapidly improving stroke proved to be a protective factor.

CONCLUSION:

Risk factors were similar to the ones known in the general group of stroke, proving they are similar in the group with acute stroke.
