Age alone should not be a barrier to thrombolysis with intravenous tissue plasminogen activator for acute ischemic stroke as benefit of treatment does not seem to be diminished in elderly patients...

A descriptive epidemiological study and a multivariate logistic regression analysis of predictive factors of mortality at 1-month and 1-year after the stroke were made...
