Abstract

Neuroprotective therapies have so far failed to provide improved neurological function and outcome after stroke. A recent focus on multimodal therapies, including the combination of neuroprotective medications with hypothermia, opens a promising new treatment strategy. Advances in hypothermia administration make it one of the most promising neuroprotective therapies available and an ideal candidate for combination with other neuroprotective approaches.
