VARELA, A. et al. Thrombolysis in acute ischemic stroke in basic hospitals: Four cases reports. Med. Intensiva [online]. 2010, vol.34, n.6, pp.428-430. ISSN 0210-5691.
Thrombolytic drugs have been used in recent years as an effective therapeutic option in ischemic stroke. There are several experiences with the administration of thrombolytic therapy in basic and rural hospitals. We are describing our experience with four cases in which this treatment was used in our basic hospital during the last three years. We used a strict protocol described in the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) rt-PA stroke study. No intracranial hemorrhage or protocol violations were detected. We conclude that this protocol has allowed us to offer safe treatment to our ischemic stroke patients.
