Britt answers, do lytics actually work for stroke? From EM:RAP October 2021.
Goes against Biological IntuitionIt dissolves clotsWorks on balance and with ICH death in STEMI with complete occlusion though maybe just blocked vesselsWorks in severe pulmonary embolusMay 2/3 dose and beware cerebral amyloid angiopathy .Needs a full review of dose type of stroke including bleeding risk and dissolving ability .Endarterectomy LVO still passes the Test ?
Good morning,I am looking for literature on use of tenecteplase in ischemic stroke. I have read and listened to the articles/talks that are most recent on EMRAP. One of our largest referral centers has advised using tenecteplase in CVA on a couple of cases and I am on a quest to get some latest data pertaining to this.V/R,LS
