Objective: The present study is designed to evaluate the level of plasma fibrinogen in patients with acute ischemic stroke and controls and also to find the association between them. Material and Methods: The present study consists of 100 patients among which 50 were controls and 50 were cases including both sexes, aged between 28 to 98 years who had been admitted to medical wards and attended to OPD of Sri Siddhartha Medical College. Age, Sex and BMI was calculated and recorded. All the patients were subjected to blood sugar, and blood pressure. Plasma Fibrinogen was assessed by Clauss Clotting Method and compared to age, sex, BMI and risk factor of matched controls. Results: In the present study we observed that the mean Plasma Fibrinogen (in mg %) was significantly higher in people with acute ischemic stroke (622.06 ± 112.76) levels than the people with normal CT-MRI findings (255.02 ± 144.99). Conclusions: In the present study, the mean plasma fibrinogen levels were found to be higher in acute ischemic stroke patients when compared to controls. Hence measurement of plasma fibrinogen levels which is more specific than C-reactive protein to vascular disease is potentially useful to predict the possible outcome.
