Show Notes

ICH accounts for approximately 15 percent of all strokes.  Despite improvements in neurocritical care, the mortality for patients with ICH can still reach 50 percent at 1-year, with many left with significant residual deficits.  Patients with an ICH who are taking an oral anticoagulant medication tend to have larger ICH volumes, more frequent IVH, and a greater frequency of hematoma expansion.  In this podcast, we review the latest recommendations on reversing anticoagulant medications in patients with an ICH. This is information you can’t afford to miss!
