Sequential tirofiban infusions combined with endovascular treatment may improve outcomes in acute ischemic stroke - a meta-analysis

Forest plot comparing 90-day favorable functional outcomes for EVT+ tirofiban vs. EVT. Included trials are divided into subgroups based on tirofiban administration strategy (single dose or loading dose plus maintenance doses). Subsequent subgroup analysis was completed by separating loading dose plus maintenance studies based on the maintenance dosage (low dose, high dose, or unknown). CI, confidence interval; Weight, statistical weight (an indirect estimate of study precision and impact on overall pooled estimates of the single study result).
