"Take home messages
  • Two major life-threatening complications of administration of tPA for ischemic stroke include angioedema and symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage.
  • Angioedema is usually benign and self-limited, however one must be vigilant to signs of developing airway compromise and be ready to intubate.
  • Consider symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage in any patient with neurological deterioration following tPA administration; stop the tPA infusion and get a head CT.
  • Cryoprecipitate and TXA are important first line therapies for ICH; consider platelets, FFP and / or PCC in certain populations."
