Low triglyceride to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol ratio predicts hemorrhagic transformation in large atherosclerotic infarction of acute ischemic stroke

Figure 1. Nomograms of patients attributable to large artery atherosclerosis to predict hemorrhagic transformation after acute ischemic stroke. Locate the TG/HDL-C on the respective axis; draw a straight line up to the Points axis to determine how many points toward hemorrhagic transformation the patient receives for the TG/HDL-C; repeat this process for diabetes mellitus and NIHSS; add the points and locate this number on the Total points axis; and draw a straight line down to find the patient’s estimated risk of hemorrhagic transformation. The c-indexes for the training and test cohorts of patients attributable to large artery atherosclerosis are 0.734 (A) and 0.698 (B), respectively. TG, triglyceride; HDL-C, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; NIHSS, National Institute of Health Stroke Scale.
