High Fibrinogen-to-Albumin Ratio Predicts Adverse Outcomes in Large Artery Atherosclerosis Stroke
11 Dec 2023 • A high fibrinogen-to-albumin ratio (FAR) level was associated with an increased risk of stroke recurrence, poor functional outcome, and dependence in patients with acute LAA stroke.
These findings, based on 809 patients within 72 hours of an LAA stroke, highlight the prognostic potential of the fibrinogen-to-albumin ratio (FAR), a novel inflammatory marker in acute large artery atherosclerosis (LAA) stroke.
Fibrinogen‐to‐albumin ratio could be an independent predictor of poor outcomes in acute large artery atherosclerosis stroke. Appropriate treatment might be considered in patients with high fibrinogen‐to‐albumin ratio levels to reduce the occurrence of poor outcomes.
