Abstract

Background: Stroke is a global health problem and the major cause of death and disability, including Thailand. Early non contrast computed tomography of the brain and Alberta Stroke Program Early CT Score (ASPECTS) was used to assessment severity of middle cerebral artery stroke.

Method: All middle cerebral artery stroke who were patients admitted at stroke unit in Bhumibol Adulyadej hospital during September 2016 - August 2017 were retrospectivel reviewed. The ASPECTs were assessment at the first admission. Modified Rankin Scale (mRS) was collected at 3 months after admission. ASPCETs and Modified Rankin Scale of all patient were analyzed.
Result: 109 middle cerebral artery stroke patients were included. Sixty-five patients were male and forty-four patients were female. Average age of onset was 68.1 years-old and the averaged ASPECTs was 2.94±1.964. ASPECTs and Modified Rankin Scale was significant significantly negative correlation (sig = .001)

Conclusion: ASPECTs can predict disability in 3 months after middle cerebral artery
stroke event at Bhumibol Adulyadej Hospital RTAF.
