Abstract Background and Aims: To date, the correlation between sarcopenia, which exists before a stroke, and acute stroke outcome remains partially understood. This study aims to evaluate the skeletal muscle mass deficit using the bioelectrical impedance analysis in patients with acute ischemic stroke. Methods: We enrolled 164 geriatric patients with acute ischemic stroke (108 males and 56 females) who underwent the bioelectrical impedance analysis. We evaluated clinical outcomes and their impact on patients with the skeletal …
