In brief: Bleeding
There are risks associated with tpa (alteplase).
Complications include bleeding into the brain, other types of serious bleeding (e.g., gastrointestinal), and death. It is important to weigh the possibility of benefit against the possibility of harm. In most cases tpa (alteplase) is safe and makes a positive impact on the outcome in stroke patients.
