Predicting the likelihood of hemorrhage in patients with stroke.

Abstract

To identify those clinical findings that independently help differentiate intracranial hemorrhage from cerebral infarction, we studied patients who were admitted to a hospital with acute focal neurologic deficits after strokes during a 17-month period. The predictive strength of a decision-making aid incorporating these findings was then assessed by studying patients who were admitted to a different hospital after experiencing strokes. The decision-making aid stratified the patients into groups having probabilities of intracranial hemorrhage ranging from 5% to 67%. The results of this study may facilitate more discriminating test selection during the early evaluation of patients who have had strokes.
