Very late IV thrombolysis in acute ischemic stroke: A successful case in proximal MCA occlusion
Clinical Neurology and Neurosurgery, 06/15/2012
Joux J et al. – The authors describe a case of M1–MCA cardioembolic occlusion admitted 13h after the symptoms onset. Because MRI showed a franck clinical and FLAIR–DWI mismatch, they performed an IV thrombolysis, with a very good clinical and angiographic result. Very late IV thrombolysis is feasable in carefully selected stroke cases.
