Phase N/A Results

Results

The combined incidence of mortality and institutionalization at 1 year was lower in stroke-unit patients than in stroke-team patients (14% vs. 30%; p < 0.001) or in domiciliary-care patients (14% vs 24%; p = 0.03). There was no significant difference in dichotomized modified Rankin scale or Barthel Index scores among the three groups.
