Spotlight on Research

Current evidence is not clear as to whether people who sustain a head injury while on anticoagulant and antiplatelet medication are at increased risk of intracranial haemorrhage (ICH). This 2-year study provides a retrospective analysis of all adult patients who attended the emergency department (ED) with a head injury and were admitted as an inpatient, and who were taking anticoagulant (warfarin) and/or antiplatelet (aspirin, clopidogrel, dipyridamole) treatments prior to admission (n=399).
