Thank you for posting your query.
Tissue plasminogen activator
(tpa) is used for treating acute brain stroke
(lack of blood flow to brain) and is generally safe and effective. However, in about 5% of cases, bleeding does occur.
If the bleeding in the brain is large, a surgery can be done to remove it.
is most likely due to unrelated causes such as lung infection
. This can be treated with antibiotics.
The ultimate receovery depends on the damage caused to brain due to his initial brain stroke as well as bleeding in the brain.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
