Ischemic Stroke: Risk Stratification, Warfarin Teatment and Outcome Measure

Stroke is a focal neurological syndrome of vascular basis, which may be due to ischemic thrombo-embolism or intra-cerebral haemorrhage.  This condition has to be treated on emergency basis as it may cause an irreversible neurological damage. Warfarin has been a widely used oral anti-coagulant in treating ischemic stroke patients.  This review highlights the benefits and challenges of warfarin treatment in stroke patients and discusses about the importance of risk stratification scores & bleeding scores in estimating the bleeding risk associated with warfarin treatment. This review also highlights the use of stroke outcome measures in identifying the patients with post-stroke disabilities to provide patient specific treatment.
