Abstract: Thrombolysis of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) by tissue Plasminogen Activator (t - PA ? Alteplase) is a well - established rescue treatment for patients presenting within the window period of 3hrs (now extended to 4.5hrs) since 1996, when it was approved by FDA. Our government started a pilot project by making it available free of cost in government hospitals. In our Department of Neurology, Govt. Rajaji Hospital we have started I. V thrombolysis since 2016, and we have done a pilot prospective study regarding the outcome of I. V thrombolysis using t - PA in AIS patients presenting within window period. . The aim is to study the outcome during the post thrombolysis period (Iimmuniately after thrombolysis, then after 24hrs and after 3 months post thrombolysis).
