: The purpose of this study is to investigate the predictive factors for intrahospital mortality in ischemic stroke patients. We will examine the association between a range of clinical and demographic factors and intrahospital mortality, including age, sex, comorbidities, laboratory values, and medication use. : This retrospective, longitudinal, analytic, observational cohort study included 243 patients over 18 years old with a new ischemic stroke diagnosis who were hospitalized in Cluj-Napoca Emergency County Hospital. Data collected included the patient demographics, baseline characteristics at hospital admission, medication use, carotid artery Doppler ultrasound, as well as cardiology exam, and intrahospital death. : Multivariate logistic regression was used to determine which variables were independently associated with intrahospital death. An NIHSS score > 9 (OR-17.4; 22.3 mL (OR-5.8; = 0.003) were found to be associated with the highest risk of death. In contrast antiplatelet treatment (OR-0.349; = 0.04) was associated with lower mortality rates. : Our study identified a high NIHSS score and large lesion volume as independent risk factors for intrahospital mortality in ischemic stroke patients. Antiplatelet therapy was associated with lower mortality rates. Further studies are needed to explore the potential mechanisms underlying these associations and to develop targeted interventions to improve patient outcomes.
