We also use repeated measures analysis with mixed models to analyze the changes in NIHSS
score and handgrip strength between compliance rate and other covariates.
The age, sex, vascular risk factors (hypertension, diabetes, previous stroke, smoking, alcohol intake, coronary artery disease, and atrial fibrillation), previous hospitalization within the past 3 months, type of stroke (infarct or hemorrhage), localization of stroke if it is an infarct (anterior or posterior circulation), need for intubation, length of emergency room stay, NIHSS
score on admission, pre-morbid mRS score, and outcome (mortality, NIHSS
score and mRS score at discharge) of the patients were retrieved and recorded.
The variables which were analyzed included age, gender, baseline NIHSS
score, OTT, glucose level on admission, presence of AF and other risk factors (arterial hypertension, diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia, smoking).
11] In another study, the same author found that CT infarct volume at 7-10 days as outcome predictor at 3 months performed less well compared to the NIHSS
score at 1 week, which was highly predictive of 3 months clinical outcome in ischaemic stroke.
Mean and standard deviation (SD) were calculated for continuous variables like NIHSS
and serum calcium.

When stratifying for the clinical severity of the neurological deficit (quantified by the NIHSS
score on admission) sensitivity of the GFAP test was markedly lower in clinically less severely affected patients (NIHSS
Using the NIHSS
score as a guide, it was determined that the patient had a stroke with moderate to severe impact.
Observation indexes: The NIHSS
scores of the three groups before the thrombolytic therapy as well as at H1, H24, D7, D30, and D90 after the treatment were calculated to compare the clinical efficacy among the three groups.
The primary outcome measure are combined safety endpoint at 30 days (VARC-2 defined), and hierarchical composite efficacy endpoint determined by all-cause mortality or any stroke, NIHSS
(National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale) or MoCa (Montreal Cognitive Assessment) worsening and total volume of cerebral ischemic lesions detected by diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI), two to five days post-procedure.
The outcome was assessed by the NIHSS
score on admission, mRS (mRS, 0=no symptoms at all, 6=death) scores at discharge, and the length of hospitalization.
