Abstract

Pregnancy has usually been an exclusion criterion in clinical trials with thrombolysis and endovascular therapy in acute ischemic stroke. For that reason, these therapies are not recommended causing lack of evidence and vice versa. In this case report, we describe a pregnant woman in week 33 + 3 presenting with acute ischemic stroke, which was successfully treated with systemic thrombolysis and endovascular therapy, resulting in a good clinical outcome for both mother and child. The altered fibrinolytic system and the risk factors related to pregnancy constitute a challenge for clinicians when choosing the most suitable treatment modality for treating acute ischemic stroke in pregnancy. It is still uncertain whether thrombolysis in combination with endovascular therapy or endovascular therapy alone is the most appropriate treatment option. However, there is slowly growing evidence that thrombolysis and thrombectomy in pregnancy are feasible and safe with a good clinical outcome for both the mother and the child.
