Pediatric stroke is a rare disorder with a paucity of evidence-based treatment options, and can result in significant morbidity and mortality. In contrast to adult acute ischemic stroke, where the use of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) has been studied in several large, randomized clinical trials, no high-level evidence exists ...
