Importance of coordination of regional stroke centers for acute ischemic stroke
Acute ischemic stroke (AIS) is a devastating disease all over the world, and intravenous thrombolysis is the gold-standard treatment. Shortening the pre-hospital delay and optimizing the in-hospital process are important for improving the stroke survival rate. Clinical evidence has proven the positive influence of coordinated stroke centers and regional stroke networks on the clinical efficacy of intravenous thrombolysis for AIS patients. A coordinated stroke center and regional stroke network can significantly increase the efficacy of intravenous thrombolysis for AIS, shorten the pre-hospital delay time, and improve clinical prognosis.
