Anticoagulant drugs are effective in preventing and treating blood clots, but they also increase the risk of intracerebral haemorrhage. When intracerebral haemorrhage occurs, rapid reversal of the anticoagulant effect is recommended. However, reversal treatment must be selected on the basis of the anticoagulants' various mechanisms of action, and a specific antidote is preferred where available.
