External validation of the DRAGON score in an elderly Spanish population: prediction of stroke prognosis after IV thrombolysis.

Cerebrovasc. Dis.. 2013;36(2):110-4, PMID: 24029547

Intravenous (i.v.) thrombolysis within 4.5 h of symptom onset has proven efficacy in acute ischemic stroke treatment, although half of all outcomes are unfavorable. The recently published DRAGON score aims to predict the 3-month outcome in stroke patients who have received i.v. alteplase. The purpose of this study was an external validation of the results of the DRAGON score in a Spanish cohort.
