Abstract

Aims The aim of the study was to evaluate the association of the body mass index (BMI) with mortality and with non-fatal functional outcome in patients with acute stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA). Obesity is an established risk factors in primary cardiovascular disease prevention including stroke. The impact of overweight in patients with stroke or TIA on secondary fatal and non-fatal functional outcomes is less well established. Methods and results Data from 4428 patients with acute stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA) from the Telemedical Project for Integrative Stroke Care (TEMPiS) were studied in this post hoc analysis. The body mass index was available in 1521 patients. Patients were categorized as underweight (BMI
