Abstract

In four patients with acute basilar artery thrombosis, complete arterial recanalization and good neurologic outcome were achieved with a treatment combining alteplase with tirofiban. In no cases were cerebral or extracerebral hemorrhagic complications observed. Combined fibrinolytic agents and glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors may have high potential in the treatment of acute cerebrovascular thrombosis.
