Thrombolytic therapy for acute stroke symptoms is based on the time the patient was last seen normal. This concept is based on the fundamental principle that time is brain. The longer you wait, the less chance of successful treatment. But is time really brain? In theory it is, but advanced imaging technology has shown that there may be viable brain tissue many hours after our usual thrombolytics time cutoffs. Inversely, patients presenting well within the ‘time window’ may have no viable tissue left.
