Stroke Location Is an Independent Predictor of Cognitive Outcome. Stroke: 2016;47:66-73.
Predicting the long term post-stroke cognitive impairment from the first few days following the insult.
- In clinical routine, this tool is used by neuro-radiologists and neurologists to predict the overall cognitive evolution 3 months after the event, that can help to rapidly inform patients and their relatives and optimize patient care and management.
- In clinical research, this tool can further be used to identify homogenous patient populations and improve the statistical power of trials aiming at testing neuroprotective strategies.
- Value-added medical service: quicker treatment optimization thus resulting in an improvement of the likelihood of patient recovery.
- Better patient management decreases lower direct and indirect costs associated with the recovery of the patient.
