Clinical efficacy and safety of hypernormal shortened door to needle time (DNT) plus individualized low-dose alteplase therapy in treating acute ischemic stroke
Objective: This study aims to observe the clinical efficacies of hyper-early low-dose alteplase thrombolysis in treating acute ischemic stroke (AIS).
Methods: Two hundred twenty AIS patients were randomly divided into group A (90 cases), group B (90 cases), and group C (40 cases). The National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) scores, mRS score-evaluated prognosis, intracranial hemorrhage, and mortality of the three groups were observed before and after the treatment.
Results: The NIHSS scores of the three groups were significantly reduced after the treatment (P<0.05), among which the NIHSS score of group A was the lowest (P<0.05); and the difference between group B and C was not significant (P>0.05). The incidence of such complications as cerebral hemorrhage in the three groups was low, and there was no significant difference among the groups (P>0.05). The modified Rankin Scale (mRS)scores of the three groups showed that group A had much better prognosis than group B and C, while the difference between group B and group C was not significant.
Conclusions: The hyper-early low-dose alteplase thrombolysis was safe and effective in Acute ischemic stroke (AIS).
