The relationship between plasma fibrinogen and post-stroke cognitive impairment

Takeaway

  • High levels of plasma fibrinogen (FIB) are an independent risk factor for post-stroke cognitive impairment (PSCI), and higher body mass index (BMI) is protective for post-stroke cognitive function.

Why this matters

    Cognitive deficits after stroke have a negative impact on executive functions, thus identifying factors related to PSCI may improve quality of life following stroke.
