Lesion patterns in successful and failed thrombolysis in middle cerebral artery stroke

Abstract

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.
