Impact of CT scanner location on door to imaging time for emergency department stroke evaluation
Stroke is a potentially serious condition commonly diagnosed in the ED. Time to diagnosis can be crucial to maximizing outcome in a majority of ischemic stroke cases amenable to thrombolytic therapy.

Thrombolysis for atlantoaxial dislocation mimicking acute ischemic stroke: Case report and review
The frequency of stroke mimics among stroke patients has been reported to be up to 30%, and that in patients who receive thrombolytic therapy ranges between 1% and 16%. Atlantoaxial dislocation with myelopathy mimicking stroke is extremely rare. An 83-year-old man with a history of old cerebellar infarction presented to the emergency department with acute left hemiplegia after a chiropractic manipulation of the neck and back several hours before symptom onset. Mild hypoesthesia was observed on his left limbs.

Thrombolytic therapy-associated acute myocardial infarction in patients with acute ischemic stroke: A treatment dilemma
Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is uncommon in the acute phase of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) and occurs in approximately 1% of the population. Here, we report a paradoxical case of AMI during tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) infusion for AIS. We review and analyze the previously reported cases. We found that only patients with AMI which occurred after thrombolytic therapy for AIS who received an adequate combination of anticoagulation plus percutaneous coronary intervention survived their events.

Is it dangerous to treat acute ischemic stroke by thrombolytic therapy in patients with comorbid intracranial aneurysms
The safety of cerebral ischemic stroke patients with comorbid intracranial aneurysms treated by thrombolysis is still an unsolved mystery. We aimed to perform a secondary analysis and review to provide evidence on whether stroke patients with intracranial aneurysms have worse outcomes following thrombolysis.
