1. Incidence of intracerebral hemorrhage in older patients has increased since 1948. 2. Hypertension and statin use are both associated with intracerebral hemorrhage. Evidence Rating Level: 3 (Average) Study Rundown: Of all stroke types, intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) possesses the highest mortality rate and is the greatest cause of disability. While stroke incidence...
1. In this meta-analysis, the proportion of patients with cerebellar intracerebral hemorrhage who underwent surgical evacuation and had a favorable functional outcome was not greater than those who received conservative medical treatment. 2. The proportion of patients who survived at 3 months was significantly increased among patients who received surgical...

1. In this randomized control trial conducted in Japan, intensive blood pressure control (less than 130/80) was associated with reduced risk of first recurrent stroke. 2. While the target blood pressure was 120/80, average blood pressure actually achieved in the intensive group was 127/78 Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: Strokes...
Patients with a history of occlusive vascular disease who are on antithrombotic therapy are at an increased risk of intracerebral hemorrhage. Generally, antithrombotic therapy is discontinued after intracerebral hemorrhage in these patients. However, no published randomized trials have studied the long-term safety of antithrombotic therapy in survivors of intracerebral...
Treatment and Long-Term Clinical Outcomes of Incidental Pulmonary Embolism in Patients With Cancer: An International Prospective Cohort Study Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a common complication in patients with cancer. Often, VTEs are incidentally detected on imaging studies undertaken for cancer staging or evaluation of treatment response. Current guidelines recommend that...
1. There were no significant differences in the proportion of death and disability in patients with intracranial hemorrhage with blood pressures maintained at 140-179 mmHg versus 110-139 mmHg. 2. There were no significant differences in EQ-5D scores and hematoma expansion in patients with intracranial hemorrhage with blood pressures maintained at 140-179...
1. Treatment with fingolimod reduced perihematomal edema (PHE) and reduced the numbers of circulating lymphocytes in patients with intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). 2. 100% of patients treated with fingolimod achieved a reduction in neurologic impairment and an improvement in Glasgow coma scale (GCS) score of 15 by day 7.  Evidence Rating Level:...
Image: PD 1. Intensive lowering of blood pressure in patients with intracerebral hemorrhage did not produce a significant reduction in the primary end point of death or major disability at 90 days. 2. Intensive lowering of blood pressure did reduce the degree of disability at 90 days. 3. Intensive lowering of...
