BACKGROUND Despite the increasing use of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) in acute ischemic stroke, uncertainty persists about the short- and long-term outcome of the thrombolysed patients. OBJECTIVE To identify predictors of major neurological improvement at 24 h after intravenous rt-PA administration in patients of acute ischemic stroke and their relationship with outcome at 12 months. MATERIALS AND METHODS We analyzed the data of the patients with acute ischemic stroke… CONTINUE READING
