Dr. Nasiba Khan | Dr. Mukesh Kumar Samota | Dharam Singh | Dr. Sudhir Bhandari


Abstract: This comprehensive clinical study investigates the potential of serum ferritin levels as a prognostic indicator in acute ischemic stroke. With stroke emerging as a significant global health concern, reliable prognostic markers are crucial for patient management. The study assesses the correlation between serum ferritin levels and various clinical parameters, including stroke severity, consciousness status, and disability outcomes. Results reveal a significant association between elevated serum ferritin levels and severe stroke, as well as unfavourable outcomes. The findings suggest that serum ferritin could serve as a promising prognostic index in acute ischemic stroke, aiding in patient risk stratification and clinical decision - making.
