Liu J, Walton J, DeVries A, Nelson R. Disruptions of Circadian Rhythms and Thrombolytic Therapy During Ischemic Stroke Intervention Frontiers in Neuroscience. 2021 Jan;15. Abstract Several endogenous and exogenous factors interact to influence stroke occurrence, in turn contributing to discernable daily distribution patterns in the frequency and severity of cerebrovascular events. Specifically, strokes that occur...
