Bridging Protocol (IVT+TBY)  

Bridging Protocol (IVT+TBY) records when a stroke patient is treated with both IV thrombolysis and thrombectomy. In this protocol the following data entry form is used:   

Bridging Protocol: Intravenous Thrombolysis + Thrombectomy (IVTP+TBYP bridge) – protocol for registering patients who initially receive intravenous thrombolysis and are subsequently treated with thrombectomy. 

Benefits: 

  • The protocol is automatically selected when you specify the type of treatment 
  • Document, evaluate and measure data with outcomes in both treatments  
  • The protocol allows you to collect all data in one place related to both treatments instead of using multiple protocols 


The protocol is automatically selected when entering the treatment type and does not need to be selected prior to entering data.
