Oxfordshire Community Stroke Project (OCSP) as a Determining Factor in the Incidence of Inpatient Complications of De Novo Ischemic Stroke in Second-level Care Hospitals
Cerebrovascular Disease and Interventional Neurology
P11 - Poster Session 11 (5:30 PM-6:30 PM)

Most Hispanic patients present inpatient complications during DNIS. The OCSP classification evaluates the location and extent of the ischemic stroke by arterial irrigation territories in such a way that provides early information about the patient's evolution and prognosis.

This study aims to demonstrate that the OCSP classification determines the incidence of De Novo Ischemic Stroke (DNIS) inpatient complications in second-level care hospitals.

A retrospective, analytical study was carried out in two second-level care Hospitals. The OCSP classification was used to categorize patients according to the affected circulation. A χ² test was carried out to establish the difference between the neurological complications (NC) and Non-Neurological complications (NNC) incidence rates among the OCSP classification.

In a cohort of 320 Hispanic patients with NIS, 64% were men with a mean age of 69 ± 13 years. The average incidence of NC in the study population was 48.1%. According to the OCSP Classification, patients with Lacunar Syndrome (LACS) exhibited the highest incidence of NC at 61.9%, followed by patients with total anterior circulation (TACS) at 55.2%, partial anterior circulation (PACS) at 55.1%, and Posterior Circulation (POCS) at 42.9%. The average incidence of NNC was 55.6%. TACS had the highest incidence at 61.2%, followed by POCS at 59.8%, PACS at 55.1%, and LACS at 41.3%. LACS exhibited the lowest rate of mixed complications (41.3%), while the other groups showed similar higher rates which exceeded (≈>70%).

The χ² test exhibits that there is a strong statistical difference between the frequency of complications among the OCPS classification. (X2: 16.88 and p-value < 0.001).

We can leverage the OCSP Classification to determine the affected circulation in stroke cases, enabling the anticipation and prevention of NC and NNC and their associated sequelae among Hispanic patients.
