Intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) is associated with a high mortality and morbidity. Patients with this disorder may now be offered the possibility of treatment. This treatment comes in the form of intraventricular thrombolytics. At present a large randomized trial is testing the efficacy of intraventricular rt-PA in IVH in the setting of intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) . Preliminary data suggests that it may be successful in patients with IVH in this setting. This trial is the accumulation of animal and human trials completed over the last 20 years.
