Thrombolytics for Acute Ischemic Stroke - Internal - No CME

Thrombolytics options have grown from just alteplase to include tenecteplase which some centers have adopted while others haven't. While both medications are similar, there is growing evidence that there are quite a few differences in administration, monitoring, and indications for medication use.
