Successful thrombolysis for acute ischaemic stroke after reversal of dabigatran etexilate with idarucizumab


We report the experience of reversing dabigatran prior to administering systemic thrombolysis for acute ischaemic cerebellar stroke, which was well tolerated with no haemorrhagic complications after thrombolysis. Given the increasingly common use of dabigatran for atrial fibrillation, the use of idarucizumab to reverse of dabigatran is a novel treatment that should be considered as an important adjunct to facilitate thrombolysis for ischaemic strokes and minimise haemorrhagic complications.
