Drawing Test Predicts Stroke Mortality Risk

Poorer performance on Trail Making Test-A (TMT-A) almost doubled the risk of death during a median poststroke follow-up of 2.5 years (HR 1.88 per SD, 95% CI 1.31 to 2.71, P=0.001). Patients who performed the worst on the TMT-A had almost a three times greater mortality risk compared with patients who had the best scores on the test prior to stroke (HR 2.90 per SD, 95% CI 1.24 to 6.77, P=0.014).
