Does the application of X-ray contrast agents impair the clinical effect of intravenous recombinant tissue-type plasminogen activator in acute ischemic stroke patients?

Abstract:

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Experimental data suggest a negative interaction between x-ray contrast agents and fibrinolytic efficacy of recombinant tissue-type plasminogen activator (rtPA). We hypothesized that the application of a contrast agent before intravenous thrombolysis with rtPA reduces its clinical efficacy in acute ischemic stroke. METHODS: We retrospectively studied consecutive ischemic stroke patients receiving contrast agents for computed tomography angiography before intravenous t...
