We conducted a study on the factors predictive of early mortality (within 30 days of onset of symptoms) in a clinical series of 94 patients at their first stroke. Irrespective of the type of stroke, ischemic or hemorrhagic, early mortality proved to correlate with clinical parameters, such as coma at onset, presence of paralysis, changes in ocular motility, and neuroradiological parameters (lesion size on the CT scan) indicative of stroke severity.

Abstract

We conducted a study on the factors predictive of early mortality (within 30 days of onset of symptoms) in a clinical series of 94 patients at their first stroke. Irrespective of the type of stroke, ischemic or hemorrhagic, early mortality proved to correlate with clinical parameters, such as coma at onset, presence of paralysis, changes in ocular motility, and neuroradiological parameters (lesion size on the CT scan) indicative of stroke severity.
