Overview

Thrombolytic stroke therapy is based on the “recanalizati on hypothesis,“ i.e, that re opening of occluded vessels improves clinical o utcome in acute ischemic stroke thro ugh regi onal reperfusi on and salvage of thre atened tissues. Thrombus within large vessels is relatively resistant to dissoluti on from plasminogen activators delivered intraveno usly providing a re ason to pursue direct endovascular technique to open a vessel.
