About the Case Presentation

Acute management of stroke involves rapid assessment and intervention to restore blood flow to the affected brain area, minimizing damage and improving outcomes. Key interventions include the administration of thrombolytic agents like tPA or mechanical thrombectomy within a critical time window, along with supportive care and monitoring in a specialized stroke unit. Prompt imaging, such as CT or MRI, aids in accurate diagnosis and treatment planning, while ongoing rehabilitation and secondary prevention strategies help mitigate long-term effects and reduce recurrence.
