This study aimed to identify potential risk factors for clinically important outcomes (CIOs) and to develop a prediction model for CIOs in AD to aid clinical d...
Abstract null null Introduction null In order to determine if time from onset to treatment time (OTT) to alteplase (tPA) administration is associated with improved outcomes in acute ischemic stroke, we performed a retrospective analysis of all acute ischemic stroke patients who received tPA at our hospital. null null null Methods null We performed a retrospective review of our Get With the Guidelines® stroke data to determine OTT was associated with either 1.) modified Rankin scale (mRS) at 90 d...
