Experimental: Tranexamic Acid Arm
Tranexamic Acid 500 milligrams (MG)
Participants of the Tranexamic Acid (TXA) arm will receive the study drug, TXA. Participants of average body weight (60-100kg) will receive TXA according to a 500mg three times daily (TID) dose regimen. Weight deviations from this range will see dose adjustments as follows: participants <60kg will receive 500mg two times daily (BID), and participants >100kg will receive 1000mg BID.
Drug: Tranexamic Acid 500 MG
Tranexamic Acid 500mg oral tablets.
Other Name: TXA
No Intervention: Control Arm
Participants in the control arm will not receive any additional intervention, medication, or placebo, and will serve as a comparative arm for the experimental arm.
- Chronic subdural hematoma volume change [ Time Frame: 4-8 weeks, 8-12 weeks ]Change in hematoma volume in mL according to volume measurements made on CT scans comparing CT scan at 4-8 weeks to immediate post-operative CT scan.
- Neurological outcome [ Time Frame: 4-8 weeks, 8-12 weeks ]An assessment of neurological outcome as measured by the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS)
- Quality of life [ Time Frame: 4-8 weeks, 8-12 weeks ]Participants quality of life as measured on the Health Utilities Index (HUI).
- Quality of life [ Time Frame: 4-8 weeks, 8-12 weeks ]Participants quality of life as measured on the 36-item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36).
- Occurrence of adverse events [ Time Frame: 4-8 weeks, 8-12 weeks ]Safety of the TXA dose regimen by monitoring incidence of Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events [Safety and Tolerability]
