When to resume anticoagulation after hemorrhagic transformation?
In cases treated with thrombolysis, antithrombotics should be started 24 hours after thrombolysis, based on follow-up imaging results. Aspirin was used for antiplatelets (100 to 300 mg at physicians’ discretion) and only warfarin (initially with bridging medication of aspirin) for anticoagulation.
When do you start anticoagulants?
The EHRA-ESC recommend giving anticoagulants 1 day after onset of transient ischaemic attack, after 3 days in patients with minor stroke (defined in these guidelines as National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale [NIHSS] score <8), after 6 days in those with mild stroke (NIHSS score 8–15), and after 12 days in those …
When do you start anticoagulation after hemorrhagic stroke?

When should I restart anticoagulation after hematoma?
Although additional information is needed regarding the optimal timing of anticoagulation resumption, available evidence indicates that waiting ∼14 days may best balance the risk of recurrent bleeding, thromboembolism, and mortality after gastrointestinal tract bleeding.
