Stress Hyperglycemia Raises Short-term Mortality Post-Thrombectomy in Acute Ischemic Stroke Patients
3 Feb 2024 • Glucose-to-Glycated Hemoglobin Ratio (GAR) has emerged as a crucial indicator for stress hyperglycemia in acute ischemic stroke patients undergoing mechanical thrombectomy.
- Higher GAR levels were significantly associated with increased 3-month and 1-year all-cause mortalities, with a 4.11-fold higher risk in the highest GAR quartile compared to lowest.
- GAR was strongly linked to poor functional outcomes at 3 months.
In conclusion, stress hyperglycemia, quantified by a higher GAR, is associated with all-cause mortality and poor functional outcomes in patients with AIS who undergo MT.
