Context: Tranexamic acid (TXA) belongs to the family of lysine-derived antifibrinolytics. TXA requires a simple molecular breakdown in the liver to be metabolized and has a high renal excretion. Objectives: This study aimed to determine the effect of TXA on subdural hematoma (SDH) treatment using the SR method. Methods: Following a systematic review design, this study aimed to evaluate the effect of TXA on SDH treatment using studies published from 2000 to 2020. The search was performed by two researchers who were dominant in various types of SR studies and specialized discussion of neurosurgery. A checklist that contained the following items was used to collect the data: surname, year of study, year of publication, population, sample size, age, intervention, and outcomes. Data were also classified and reported using Word software. Results: Initially, 178 articles were identified, out of which 118 were removed due to the relevance of the title and method, 44 due to duplication, six due to following the SR method, and three due to having a case report design. Seven studies were found as eligible, as follows: the study by Wakabayashi et al. with a sample of 199 patients, Kageyama et al.'s study with 21 patients, Wan et al.'s study with 90 patients, Kutty et al.' study with 27 patients, Tanweer et al.'s study with 14 patients, Yamada et al.'s study with 193 patients, and Lodewijkx et al.'s study with 7 patients. All articles showed that TXA could reduce SH. Conclusions: Regarding the positive effect of TXA on reducing SDH, administration of this medicine is recommended in the treatment of patients with CSDH.
