Management of Acute Ischemic Stroke

Yunyun Xiong et al. Am J Med. .


The treatment of acute ischemic stroke includes both intravenous (IV) thrombolysis and mechanical thrombectomy. Important advances regarding both treatment modalities have occurred recently that all physicians who see patients at risk for or who have had a stroke should be aware of. This review will focus on recent clinical trials of IV thrombolysis both positive and negative. Additionally, the results of a large number of early and late time window thrombectomy trials will be presented that demonstrate the remarkable efficacy of this treatment for appropriately selected patients.
