Bottom Line: Logistic regression analysis was used to evaluate the effects of AHT on a short-term and long-term clinical outcome. 904 of all 1440 patients in TIMS-China registry were enrolled. 89 (9.6%) patients presented with AHT after thrombolysis within 24-36 h.No significant difference was found on the odds of 7-day (95% CI:0.692 (0.218-2.195), (P = 0.532) or 90-day mortalities (95% CI:0.548 (0.237-1.268), P = 0.160) and modified Rankin Score(0-1) at 90-day (95% CI:0.798 (0.460-1.386), P = 0.423) or modified Rankin Score(0-2) at 90-day (95% CI:0.732 (0.429-1.253), P = 0.116) or modified Rankin Score(5-6) at 90-day (95% CI:0.375 (0.169-1.830), P = 0.116) between two groups.Thrombolytic-related AHT does not deteriorate short-term and long-term clinical outcome.

ABSTRACT

Objective: It has been unclear whether thrombolytic-related asymptomatic hemorrhagic transformation (AHT) affects the clinical outcome. To answer this question, we examined whether thrombolytic-related AHT affect short-term and long-term clinical outcome.

Methods: All data were collected from the Thrombolysis Implementation and Monitor of Acute Ischemic Stroke in China (TIMS-China) registry. The patients were diagnosed as having AHT group and non- hemorrhagic transformation (HT) group based on clinical and imaging data. The patients with symptomatic hemorrhagic transformation were excluded from this study. Thrombolytic-related AHT was defined according to European-Australasian Acute Stroke Study (ECASS) II criteria. 90-day functional outcome, 7-day National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) score, 7-day and 90-day mortalities were compared between two groups. Logistic regression analysis was used to evaluate the effects of AHT on a short-term and long-term clinical outcome.

Results: 904 of all 1440 patients in TIMS-China registry were enrolled. 89 (9.6%) patients presented with AHT after thrombolysis within 24-36 h. These patients with AHT were more likely to be elder age, cardioembolic subtype, and to have higher National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale score before thrombolysis than patients without AHT. No significant difference was found on the odds of 7-day (95% CI:0.692 (0.218-2.195), (P = 0.532) or 90-day mortalities (95% CI:0.548 (0.237-1.268), P = 0.160) and modified Rankin Score(0-1) at 90-day (95% CI:0.798 (0.460-1.386), P = 0.423) or modified Rankin Score(0-2) at 90-day (95% CI:0.732 (0.429-1.253), P = 0.116) or modified Rankin Score(5-6) at 90-day (95% CI:0.375 (0.169-1.830), P = 0.116) between two groups.

Conclusions: Thrombolytic-related AHT does not deteriorate short-term and long-term clinical outcome.

Mentions: Eligible patients received intravenous thrombolysis within 4.5-hour. Patients with incomplete data and thrombolysis time window>4.5h or unknown were excluded. Patients with NIHSS score ≥25were excluded. Patients with symptomatic HT were excluded from this study. Eligible patients were divided into two groups: the AHT group, which had asymptomatic hemorrhagic transformation; and the non-HT group, which had no thrombolytic-related hemorrhagic transformation (Fig 1).
