Description
  • Purpose: to determine if a study drug called recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA), which dissolves blood clots, can help to improve a patient's condition regarding brain blood clots by rapidly removing the clot from the ventricles when compared to placebo (a fluid that does not dissolve blood clots)
  • Eligibility: patients ages 18-80 that are admitted with an intraventricular hemorrhage (bleeding in the ventricles or open spaces inside the brain).
  • Duration and Involvement: subjects will receive the study medication while they are hospitalized for their hemorrhage. They will be contacted by phone at 3 and 9 months, and follow up in clinic at 30 days, 6 months, and 1 year (final visit) after enrollment into the study.
