Ischemic stroke: Interventional treatment + alteplase = new standard of care? (MR CLEAN)

Intra-arterial interventions (thrombolysis or mechanical thrombectomy) after alteplase improved outcomes from ischemic stroke caused by proximal occlusions in the anterior intracranial arterial circulation, as compared with alteplase alone, when performed within 6 hours of symptom onset.
