THE INCIDENCE OF intracerebral hematomas after myocardial infarction increases after thrombolysis. As noted in the case described, clots formed after the administration of thrombolytic agents may remain liquid, and this blood can be drained by a catheter. However, in this case, the patient continued to bleed locally. This problem requires the development of methods to stop such ongoing local bleeding. It may be prevented in the future by improved thrombolytic drugs.
