STROKE-tPA EXLUDED PATIENTS

1. In patients ineligible for treatment with t-PA, and who are not taking anticoagulation for any other underlying disease, give 325 mg aspirin once, followed by daily aspirin 150-325 mg/day while hospitalized.

2. The risk of hemorrhagic transformation of an infarct is not high enough to offset the benefits of aspirin therapy, so treat all eligible patients, even if a small hematoma is present within the infarcted area.
