Background When untreated, dyslipidemia is a higher risk factor for stroke and stroke-related mortality in men than in women. However, when dyslipidemia is treated the risk reduction is the same, but men benefited from mortality reduction more than women. Whether there is a gender difference in exclusion criteria for the use of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA) or thrombolysis therapy in an acute ischemic stroke subpopulation with dyslipidemia is yet to be investigated.

Background Clinical risk factors related to not administering thrombolysis to acute ischemic stroke patients with incidence dyslipidemia is not clear. This issue was investigated in telestroke and non-telestroke settings.

Background The benefits of a special stroke care unit (SSCU) over a non-specialized stroke care unit (NSSCU) is well documented in the literature. However, there are concerns that the benefits seen in the SSCU do not consider clinical risk factors that affect thrombolysis therapy. Method Retrospective data were collected from a stroke registry between January 1, 2010–June 30, 2016. Univariate analysis determined differences in exclusion criteria between the SSCU and NSSCU, while multivariable bi...

Background The objective of this study is to determine clinical risk factors associated with exclusion from thrombolysis in telestroke and nontelestroke settings. These risk factors may offer clues for optimization of thrombolysis therapy in acute ischemic stroke population. Materials and Methods Retrospective data of patients with acute ischemic stroke via telestroke and nontelestroke assessment were analyzed. Univariate analysis was used to compare the recombinant tissue plasminogen activator ...

Abstract Background The treatment outcomes in the use of rt-PA have been reported. Some studies reported worse outcome in women than men, while others presented opposing data. Using data from a hospital-based stroke registry, we investigated evidence of gender difference and determined exclusion criteria in a stroke population with incidence of hypertension. Method In a stroke population of women and men with incident of hypertension from a stroke registry, demographics and clinical factors were...

Background- The disparities in stroke care between specialized stroke units and non-stroke units have been reported. While most of the existing studies investigated how intrinsic characteristics of specific treatment units have impact on the outcomes, the influence of patients’ characteristics on functional outcomes of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator-treated patients in specialized stroke units and non-stroke units is not fully understood. Method- The demographic and clinical risk facto...
