One-year all-cause mortality after stroke: a prediction model.
Using data from Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) national databases, the researchers present and internally validate a 1-year all-cause mortality prediction index after hospitalization for acute stroke. They conclude that a simple index using readily available data that stratifies stroke patients at the time of discharge according to low, moderate, high, and highest likelihood of all-cause 1-year mortality is feasible.

Comprehensive versus consultative rehabilitation services postacute stroke: outcomes differ.
The researchers compared outcomes of veteran patients provided with comprehensive rehabilitation with those provided with consultative rehabilitation services after acute stroke using propensity scores. They found that comprehensive rehabilitation services are associated with greater recovery of physical and cognitive independence, improved home discharge likelihood, and improved 1 yr. survival.
