In brief: Extension and Bleed
Medications are used to prevent propagation of the clot to more extensive areas of the cerebral venous system. Studies indicate a tendency toward better outcome in patients treated with anticoagulant therapy than in those who are not treated with anticoagulants.
In einhaupl's study, even patients with cerebral hemorrhage appeared to benefit from anticoagulation. Risks are for hemorrhage or stroke.
