Abstract

Introduction

Gaze deviation (GD) in acute ischemic stroke patients has been suggested to be associated with poor outcome and with the presence of large vessel occlusion. Our aim was to study the prognostic significance of GD in ischemic stroke patients submitted to acute revascularization treatments.

Methods

Retrospective single-center study of consecutive anterior circulation ischemic stroke patients submitted to thrombolysis and/or endovascular revascularization between 2007 and 2017. The groups of patients with and without GD were compared concerning baseline clinical and imagiological variables, functional outcome at 3 months, and survival at 1 year.

Results

Among a study population of 711 patients, 332 (46.7%) presented GD. Patients with GD were more frequently of female sex (p = 0.048), had higher baseline NIHSS scores (p < 0.001), had lower ASPECTS on baseline CT (p < 0.001), more frequently had ischemia of the right hemisphere (p < 0.001), presented higher NIHSS 24 hours after treatment (p < 0.001), and more frequently presented cardioembolic stroke (p = 0.003). In the unadjusted analyses, GD was associated with decreased 3-month functional independence and increased 1-month and 1 year mortality (p < 0.001). After adjustment for variables of interest, namely, for NIHSS 24 hours after treatment, GD was no longer associated with functional outcome or survival.

Conclusions

GD in patients with acute ischemic stroke is associated with increased clinical and imagiological severity at baseline. However, in patients submitted to acute revascularization treatments, this does not appear to be independent predictor of functional outcome or survival.
