Today in Ukraine there is no single standardized protocol for the treatment of patients in the acute period of ischemic stroke using modern methods of diagnosis and treatment, which include thrombolytic therapy and endovascular treatment. This protocol was created and implemented in Scientific-practical Center of endovascular neuroradiology, NAMS of Ukraine and is based on the latest recommendations of AHA/ASA and ESO, as well as registers of patients with ischemic stroke.
The main purpose of this publication is the creation and implementation of «instructions» for the diagnosis and selection of objective tactics for treating patients in the acute period of ischemic stroke.
