Prospective Study of Renal Impairment in Stroke Patients
Introduction Renal impairment is commonly seen in stroke patients. more common in hemorrhagic strokes. In stroke patient renal impairment is transient so required renal replacement therapy is rarely. e-GFR decreased <40mL/min the risk of symptomatic stroke in the general population more 3.1 times. Aim & Objective: Study of renal impairment in stroke patients, To compare the renal impairment between hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke. Methodology: The study comprised 100 patients admitted in Department of Medicine, J.A. Group of Hospitals. A detailed clinical history and physical examination will be done and findings will be recorded. Renal function testing was performed in hospitalized stroke patient. Serum urea and creatinine were evaluated on alternate days throughout their hospital stay, and the e-GFR was calculated. Results: All participants were having normal Renal USG. Low eGFR< 60mL/minute per 1/73m2 was found significantly higher in CVA Hemorrhage 25 (75.8%) in comparison to CVA Infract 23 (34.3%). Outcome was statistically insignificant between CVA Hemorrhage (6%) and CVA Infract (3%) group. Conclusion: Decrease eGFR < 60mL/minute per 1/73m2 was found in 48 participants out of 100 participants significantly higher in CVA Hemorrhage 25 (75.8%) in comparison to CVA Infract 23 (34.3%) (p value <0.001).
