Goes against Biological Intuition
It dissolves clots
Works on balance and with ICH death in STEMI with complete occlusion though maybe just blocked vessels
Works in severe pulmonary embolus
May 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.
