Abstract

Background: Platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) as recently emerging thrombo-inflammatory indicators were significantly associated with both major cerebrovascular/cardiovascular adverse events (MACE) and mortality. Therefore, we aimed to assess the effects of combinations of PLR and NLR in predicting the presence of CVST and in-hospital MACE.
