Answer

Inpatient care of patients with CADASIL depends on the reason for admission. Inpatient care of patients with CADASIL who present with a stroke is not entirely different than patients without CADASIL who have a stroke (see Acute Stroke Management). However, safety and efficacy of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA) in patients with CADASIL who present with an acute cerebral infarction within the therapeutic window has not been systematically assessed.
