Inflammatory factors are associated with early neurological deterioration in acute ischemic stroke patients receiving endovascular therapy-The AISRNA study

Qi-Wen DengJun-Shan Zhou


Background: This study aimed to explore several peripheral blood-based markers related to inflammatory response in a total of 85 patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) caused by large artery occlusion in the anterior circulation receiving endovascular therapy (EVT) from the AISRNA study regarding the association between inflammatory factors and early neurological deterioration (END), and investigated whether their time course correlated with END after EVT.Methods: We collected baseline characteristics of 85 AIS patients participating in an observational acute stroke cohort: the AISRNA study. The following inflammatory factors were measured in these participants: interleukin-2 [IL-2], IL-4, IL-6, IL-10, tumor necrosis factor-α [TNF-α], and interferon-γ [IFN-γ]. The National Institute of Health Stroke Scale score increase of ≥4 within 24 hours after EVT defined as END.Results: IL-6 and IL-10 were higher in patients with END compared to those with non-END (P<0.01), and they were also associated with risk factors of END after EVT. Furthermore, we found that the area under curves (AUCs) of IL-6 and IL-10 for predicting END were 0.791 (0.689-0.871), and 0.564 (0.452-0.671), respectively. Adjusting for age, sex, and atrial fibri...Continue Reading

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.
