Abstract

Hemorrhagic stroke is a frequent cause of morbidity and mortality in Poland. It results from disruption of intracranial vessel wall continuity. We report a case of 66-years-old man with prosthetic aortic valve after three ischemic strokes treated with acenocoumarol who was admitted to hospital with vertigo and motoric aphasia. Computed tomography confirmed a hemorrhagic stroke related to anticoagulant treatment. We discussed the principles of management and therapeutic options in patients requiring long-term anticoagulation suffering from severe hemorrhagic complications.
