Platelet Transfusion in Acute Intracerebral Hemorrhage
Platelet Transfusion in Acute Primary Intracerebral Hemorrhage for Patients on Platelet Inhibitors
  • To prove whether use of antiplatelet agents results into a rapid enlargement of hematoma after onset of acute intracerebral hemorrhage.
  • To prove the efficacy and safety of platelet transfusion for prevention of hematoma growth in patients who were stricken by acute intracerebral hemorrhage while being on antiplatelet medication.
  • Hematoma growth is a well-known powerful determinant of mortality and poor outcome after intracerebral hemorrhage.
  • Some observations suggest that previous use of antiplatelet agents associates with rapid hematoma enlargement and poor outcome after cerebral hemorrhage.
  • Immediate platelet transfusion for such patients may prevent hematoma growth but also cause thromboembolic complications.
