Brain receives 15% of
the cardiac output, although it only represents the 2% of body weight. Four
large arteries provide the vascular supply of the brain, and branch as
penetrating arterioles through the parenchyma. These large vascular network
allows nutrients delivery and toxics removal by the circulating blood.
|P04275||VWF||Higher circulating levels in stroke patients with functional disability at third month after the event. No significant association has been found between vWf levels and aetiological classification of ischemic stroke|
|P26022||PTX3||Higher plasma PTX3 levels are associated with mortality after stroke.|
|Q15109||RAGE||RAGE has been associated with ischemic stroke, and it may be a plasma biomarker to differenciate ischemic from hemorrhagic stroke. Ischemic stroke patients present raised plasma levels than hemorrhagic stroke patients.|
