Intravenous thrombolysis in nonagenarians with ischemic stroke

Published inStroke, vol. 42, no. 7, p. 1967-1970
Publication date2011

Demographic changes will result in a rapid increase of patients age ≥90 years (nonagenarians), but little is known about outcomes in these patients after intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) for acute ischemic stroke. We aimed to assess safety and functional outcome in nonagenarians treated with IVT and to compare the outcomes with those of patients age 80 to 89 years (octogenarians).
