|Ischemic Stroke Hyperglycemia|
The purpose of this study is to examine the relationships between diabetes mellitus, hyperglycemia,whole blood tissue factor procoagulant activity (TF-PCA) and plasma factorVIIa (FVIIa) in ten patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and 11 non-diabetic patients at baseline and 6, 12, 24, and 48 hours (h) after presentation for acute stroke.
Patients presenting to the Emergency Department with ongoing stroke symptoms and neurologic deficit less than 24 hours (h) duration were screened for inclusion into the study. Stroke patients were grouped in terms of diabetes status as determined by past medical history. Stroke diagnosis was confirmed with brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Clinical care, including the acute management ofstroke and hyperglycemia, was done at the discretion of the Neurology service not involved in the study.
