Association between Intracerebral Hemorrhage and Subsequent Ischemic Events
ICH survivors may be at an increased risk of subsequent ischemic events of the heart and brain according to a pooled data analysis of 4 population-based observation cohort studies by Murthy and colleagues1. Over 47,000 people were followed for a median of 12.7 years and those who had a primary ICH tended to be older, hypertensive and anticoagulated. The subsequent incidence of acute ischemic stroke in ICH patients was 2.3/100 person years compared to 0.5/100 person years in non-ICH patients. Subsequent incidence of MI in post ICH patients was 1.8/100 person years compared to 0.7/100 person years in non-ICH patients. This has significant implications about the tendency to avoid resuming any blood thinner or even statins after an ICH. There are several more trials ongoing (RESTART, RESTART-Fr, STATICH-Antiplatelets, ASPIRING) to help answer this question, but it seems clear that increased risk for subsequent ischemic events should be considered in this stroke population.
