Full Text


Modern methods of acute stroke treatment are analyzed: tradi­tional and mechanical thrombolysis, intraventricular thrombol­ysis, recombinant activated factor VIIa for acute intracerebral hemorrhage, hemicraniectomy. Special attention on the prob­lems of cerebral perfusion pressure and multiple organ dysfunc­tion syndrome (MODS) is concentrated. Future perspectives in acute stroke are discussed.
