Abbreviations: ESR, erythrocyte sedimentation rate; RBC, red blood cell; MCV, mean corpuscular volume; MCH, mean corpuscular hemoglobin; MCHC, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration; TPA, tissue plasminogen activator.

All values are means±standard deviation (range) for continuous variables and percent for nominal variables.

*One way ANOVA; Pearson Chi square test were P<0.05.
