Objective: This study aimed to elucidate whether LDL cholesterol (LDL-C) could differentially influence functional outcomes after intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) depending on prestroke statin use. Background: The role of the lipid profile in functional outcomes following IVT remains controversial, although low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C)-lowering treatment with statins is well known to reduce the risk of vascular events in ischemic stroke.
