Title: The influence of periodontitis on clinical courseand outcome in ischemic stroke


The aim of the study was to evaluate a possible correlation between periodontitis and clinical course and prognosis in patients with acute stroke. In detail, the study aimed at analyzing whether periodontitis correlates with the level of markers of inflammation in peripheral blood, the presence of infections, the size of ischemic lesion in CT and first of all, with neurological deficit and prognosis after acute stroke. The study was performed in 169 cases with ischemic stroke. In each case neurological and periodontological examinations according to standardized protocol were performed. The presented study revealed that advanced periodontitisand edentulousness are very common in patients with ischemic stroke; advanced periodontitis is present in 27% of cases and edentulousness in 40% of cases. In patients with preserved dentition there is no correlation between the number of teeth with dental caries and the degree of periodontitis, what indicates that dental caries isnot associated with periodontal disease. In patients with preserved dentition there is a correlation between the number of lost teeth and the degree of periodontitis.The advanced periodontitis or edentulousness correlate with the size of infarct on CT, markers of inflammation in peripheral blood and neurological deficit on admission, however, they do not affect the presence of infection in acute stroke. Advanced periodontitis or edentulousness are independent risk factors determining neurological deficit on admission, whereas they are not associated with short-term prognosis.
