Abstract

This article reviews and critiques the use of intravenous tPA for acute stroke. Guidelines on which patients should receive tPA are proposed with a particular emphasis placed on onset time. The current status of other potential stroke therapies are also reviewed, including neuroprotective trials and agents designed to limit reperfusion injury.
