Abstract

Introduction: Cardiac enzyme elevation and electrocardiographic (ECG) changes are frequent in ischemic stroke patients. The aims of our study were to determine the relationship between TnI levels, ECG changes and acute ischemic stroke. We compared the relationship between TnI levels and ECG changes with ischemic stroke severity, cardiovascular complications, unfavorable outcome and mortality.
