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).

While a recent study suggests that the window of time a stroke patient can benefit from the clotbusting drug rt-PA (recombinant tissue-plasminogen activator) has been extended from three hours to four and a half hours from the start of symptoms, you should still get to a hospital as quickly as possible.
