Optimizing Prehospital Triage for Patients With Stroke Involving Large Vessel Occlusion
The past 20 years have witnessed a revolution in the paradigm of acute ischemic stroke treatment. In 1996, intravenous alteplase was shown to improve outcomes among patients treated within 3 hours of stroke onset. This finding upended the historical therapeutic nihilism about stroke, and with it the leisurely armchair approach to stroke treatment. The concept of so-called acute ischemic stroke emerged. This changed the nature and practice of vascular neurology, created a vigorous and sometimes controversial debate between vascular neurologists and emergency physicians about the merits of alteplase, and paved the way for mo...

Efficacy is still limited by delayed presentation to the emergency department following stroke symptom onset, although this has also improved in that period with education of emergency medical services and the community at large. The real improvement lies in development of streamlined and standardized protocols for “code stroke,” so that thrombolysis rates of 20% are becoming typical and door-to-needle times are just as typically under 1 hour. These encourag...
