Intra-arterial thrombolysis (IAT) is a treatment modality in patients with acute large vessel occlusive ischemic stroke. To our knowledge, this is probably the first reported study of intra-arterial thrombolysis in acute ischemic stroke from India. Of the 17 patients treated who recieved IAT, successful recanalization was achieved in nine patients, Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) score of 2 or 3. At 90-day follow-up, eight patients achieved modified Rankin Scale (mRS) score of < 2.
