Thrombolysis has been shown to improve neurological recovery in acute stroke. But the response to thrombolysis is variable across patients. We sought to investigate this variability by analyzing the lesion patterns following systemic thrombolysis with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA) and tirofiban in middle cerebral artery (MCA) stroke. One hundred three consecutive stroke patients (67 ± 14 years) were grouped according to the site of MCA occlusion and successful or failed… CONTINUE READING
