The use of thrombolytics in stroke has been a controversial one for many years.  There is a constant questioning of risk vs. benefit that anyone tasked with this decision has to deal with.  Two papers have shown a benefit for patients within a 3 hour window and even one with an extended 4.5 hour window since symptom onset that people have lauded since their publication.  However, there have been some recent publications calling into question the validity of these 2 studies.
