Safety and outcomes associated with tranexamic acid in patients with intracerebral hemorrhage

Takeaway

  • Tranexamic acid was not found to prevent intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) growth but was safe, with no increase in thromboembolic complications.

Why this matters

    There are currently no acute therapies for ICH that have strong evidence to support their use, but ICH comprises 5% of deaths worldwide; proven treatments for ICH are needed.
