 15 + HD) but only when the left hemisphere was affected (p = 0.026, n = 101). On stepwise logistic regression analysis, adjusted for on-admission NIHSS, age at presentation, and FIV, smaller SS volume was independently associated with lower odds for hospital death (n = 183, OR 0.13, 95 % CI 0.02-0.94, p = 0.043). A larger right SS and a decrease in density increase the risk of unfavorable early clinical and imaging outcome in AIS. This finding of an outflow pattern independent of the stroke site implicates an involvement of the cerebral venous drainage system in the pathophysiology of ischemic stroke.
