AbstractAim: The aim of the present study was to assess levels of High Sensitivity C-reactive Protein in patients with Acute Ischemic and Hemorrhagic Stroke.
Methods: The present descriptive Prospective Observational Study was conducted on 100 CT/ MRI confirmed cases of Stroke admitted in Medicine Dr. DY Patil Medical College Hospital and Research Centre, Pimpri, Pune during the period from October 2020 to September 2022.
Results: The Mean Age group of study participants was 61.74±11.28 with 5% in 18-40 years, 6% in 41-50, 31% in 51-40, 41% in 61-70, 15% in 71-80 and 2% were above 80. There were 32% were females and 68% males. In our study 33 patients had right side hemiparesis and 6 patients on right side had hemiplegia, 47 patients had left side hemiparesis, 12 patients had hemiplegia 2 had monoparesis. There were 10% cases had cranial nerve involvement in our study. In Hemorrhagic Pattern of Stroke there were 92% hypertensives and in Non-Hemorrhagic Ischemic type 77%. There are 84.6% of diabetics in hemorrhagic subjects and 67.5% in ischemic subjects. The data showed 22% patients had Hs-CRP levels <10 and 78% had CRP levels >10.
Conclusion: Our Study showed that HS-CRP are elevated and can be considered as independent risk factors of Stroke.
