Answer

Acute ischemic stroke has been associated with acute cardiac dysfunction and arrhythmia, which then correlate with worse functional outcome and morbidity at 3 months. Data suggest that severe hyperglycemia is independently associated with poor outcome and reduced reperfusion in fibrinolysis, as well as extension of the infarcted territory. [54, 55, 56]
