A major reason for the limited use of rt-PA
is its narrow therapeutic window (within 3 hours of onset of stroke symptoms), as well as the risk of intracerebral hemorrhage.
Studies have shown that, when rt-PA
is administered within 4.
5-hour window, he received rt-PA
with a door-to-needle time of approximately 2.
Exclusion criteria were based on the NINDS rt-PA
trial (6) protocol (in our study the upper age limit was 75 years), which broadly restricts eligibility to those without evidence of intracranial blood on baseline computed tomography (CT) scanning, low risk of bleeding, and those without rapidly resolving symptoms or severe neurological deficit (National Institutes of Health stroke scale (NIHSS) >25).

Methods: In our prospective study, we report our experience using rt-PA
in 21 patients with IVH.

for acute stroke and MRI scanning.
However it can only be given within three hours of a stroke starting and some animal research has shown that rt-PA

A course of streptokinase costs about $200, while rt-PA
goes for more than $2,200.
