In the acute phase of the stroke it is very important to establish the prognostic factors. A prediction model of high sensibility and specificity is not easy. It should be very significative not only in the sphere of the clinical management, but also for the research. Besides the well know (generally immutate in the time) prognostic factors (age, sex, hypertension, atrial fibrillation, anamnestic other cerebrovascular episodes, diabetes) it is very significant the severity of the neurological examen after the stroke, the complications in the successive days , the reactions to the therapies adopted, particularly with the thrombolytic treatment. After the discussion of all factors the Authors express the opinion that in the prognostic sphere of the stroke is enough very important the clinical considerations.
