No Relation between Body Temperature and Arterial Recanalization at Three Days in Patients with Acute Ischaemic Stroke

Abstract

BACKGROUND Recanalization of an occluded intracranial artery is influenced by temperature-dependent enzymes, including alteplase. We assessed the relation between body temperature on admission and recanalization. METHODS We included 278 patients with acute ischaemic stroke within nine hours after symptom onset, who had an intracranial arterial occlusion… (More)
