Early Prediction of Malignant Brain Edema after Ischemic Stroke
Stroke 49:2918-2927, Wu, S.,et al, 2018
See this aricle in Pubmed

Article Abstract
Younger age, higher National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale, and larger parenchymal hypoattenuation on computed tomography are reliable early predictors for malignant edema. Revascularization reduces the risk of malignant edema. Future studies with robust design are needed to explore optimal cutoff age and National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale scores and to validate and improve existing models.
