Thrombolysis with tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and hypothermia are two potential treatment modalities for acute ischemic stroke. Many investigators are studying these modalities both in the laboratory and in clinical trials. Because these modalities each appear to show benefit in animal models, there is considerable interest in studying combined therapy with both thrombolysis and hypothermia. However, it is known that alterations in the coagulation system can occur with decreased body… CONTINUE READING
