Important Paper: Problem With High Dose Aspirin Related To Bleeding Of The Brain
1- We all know that 161 mg to 325 mg Aspirin dose as recommended for the HVAD can lead to Cerebral bleeding or Asymptomatic Micro brain bleeding.
2- But a paper published today is quite disturbing in that once the intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) starts there may not be any cure.
NEW ORLEANS -- Treatment plans offered by neurologists and neurosurgeons in hypothetical cases of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) varied widely, a researcher said here, suggesting the condition may be both under- and overtreated.
In the case with the poorest apparent prognosis, about as many physicians in the study recommended full intensive care as those who proposed only palliative treatment, reported Darin Zahuranec, MD, of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
Physician predictions of outcomes also varied, though not quite as much, he reported during a poster session at the American Neurological Association annual meeting
This variability in assessments of patients' prognosis and wishes, he said, "may underlie some of the heterogeneity in ICH treatment" previously noted in real-life practice.
