Özet

Background and aims: Intracranial internal carotid artery calcification (IICAC) is a frequent and readily available finding in acute stroke patients treated with intravenous (IV) tissue plasminogen activator (tPA). We aimed to investigate the effects of IICAC subtype (medial and intimal) on the response to IV tPA.
