The current  COVID-19 pandemic has exposed existing weaknesses in public health infrastructure globally as well as the lack of preparedness and suboptimal response for such pandemic disasters, including for psychological aspects.  Both the economic hardship and the continuous media coverage of alarming news have exacerbated this effect which also includes increased domestic violence.

FEATURED ARTICLE: TENECTEPLASE VS. ALTEPLASE FOR ACUTE ISCHEMIC STROKE: A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW

This systematic review by Neha Potla & Latha Ganti  compares the efficacy of tenecteplase vs. alteplase with regard to three outcomes: rate of symptomatic hemorrhage, functional outcome at 90 days, and reperfusion grade after thrombectomy to compare the efficacy of both thrombolytics in AIS.  The available evidence suggests that tenecteplase appears to be a better thrombolytic agent for acute ischemic stroke when compared to alteplase.
