Observational indicators: (1) Neurological function score and ICP monitoring: The NIHSS score and intracranial pressure of patients in the two groups were recorded before treatment and in the 1st, 3rd and 7th day after treatment.
Seventy-five percent of the participants had experienced an ischemic stroke with a median (interquartile range) NIHSS of 3 (5.75).
Based on the research standards of the European Cooperative Acute Stroke Study II (9), SICH is defined as bleeding indicated by head image examination after thrombolytic therapy and a NIHSS score of 4 points or more than the baseline NIHSS score or than the baseline NIHSS score for 24-36 h after thrombolysis.
* Significant clinical deficit at the time of assessment (NIHSS >5).
She presented to our emergency department 2 hours and 15 minutes after symptom onset with an NIHSS of 6.
The baseline Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS), NIHSS, start time of the event, time of admission to the hospital, blood parameters, application time of t-PA, presence or absence of secondary hemorrhagic complications due to t-PA, and prognosis of the patients were recorded on the study form.
The patients were classified as having progressive cerebral infarction, if neurological deterioration was as [greater than or equal to]2 points of increase in the NIHSS. The patients whose symptoms remained stable or improved or whose deterioration was [less than or equal to]2 points in the NIHSS were classified as having stable cerebral infarction.
ENI was defined as a NIHSS score of 0-1 or a reduction in the score by[greater than or equal to]8 points at 24 h when compared to the pretreatment score, and this 8-point difference had a sufficient sensitivity to differentiate the treatment and placebo groups without overlapping in confidence intervals according to NINDS study (5, 7).
The biomechanical measurements as well as the FES-I were carried out at baseline (pre) and immediately after one series of SR-WBV training at the same day (post 1) and after the intervention period lasting two weeks (post 2), whereas the NIHSS and EBI were conducted at baseline (pre) and at the end of the intervention phase (post 2) only.
Regarding the extended 3-4.5-hour IVT window, 15/81 (18.5%) neurologists chose to adhere to all the four exclusion criteria (age > 80 years, history of diabetes and prior stroke, warfarin use regardless of International Normalized Ratio [INR] value, or NIHSS > 25).
The only statistically significant differences between patients who died and survivors were found for ICH volume (33.9 versus 12.5 [cm.sup.3], p<0.0002), INR on admission (3.3 versus 2.5, p<0.01), and NIHSS score on admission (25 versus 6, p<0.0001).
