Functional outcome at three months was studied in 72 patients with ischemic stroke. The Canadian Neurological Scale was used to assess the severity of stroke at admission and functional outcome at 3 months was assessed using modified Rankin scale. The size and site of the infarct was noted from the initial CT. Risk factors like hypertension, diabetes, and serum cholesterol were analyzed. Initial neurological scoring at admission, and size and site of the infarct were significantly associated with functional recovery at 3 months.
