Abstract Although the incidence of stroke among older people increases, the use of intravenous thrombolysis has initially been restricted in the elderly. However, more people aged more than 80 years, a majority of them women, may benefit from thrombolysis. Therefore characteristics, outcome, and complications in older women (aged more than 80 years) undergoing thrombolysis are studied and compared to older men and to younger women (aged less than 80 years) to detect any gender and age differences.
