Abstract

Acute ischaemic stroke constitutes 85–90% of all stroke subtypes. Majority of brain ischaemia results from cerebral or carotid arteries occlusion. High mortality and invalidity due to stroke are still unsatisfactory. Thrombolytic therapy enables recovery improvement and significant reduction of neurological deficits. In this report we present a case of 54-year-old male with ischaemic stroke of cardiogenic origin in territory of middle cerebral artery. Significant neurological recovery was observed during the first hour of i.v. rt-PA infusion. Recanalisation of middle cerebral artrery was confirmed with Transcranial Doppler examination.
