Abstract

Patients with acute ischemic stroke who have indications and no contraindication should be treated with intravenous thrombolysis and/or mechanical thrombectomy. However, majority of the patients do not receive those treatment. Aspirin is still recommended in treating patients with acute ischemic stroke within 24 hours. There was more evidence for combination of aspirin and clopidogrel in treating patients with acute ischemic stroke, which was proven for benefit over aspirin in reducing rate of recurrent stroke. Besides aspirin, combination of aspirin and clopidogrel is recommended to treat patients with acute minor stroke or TIA within 24 hours and continue for 90 days; with lower-strength of recommendation.
