The vasculature of the brain and kidneys are similarly vulnerable to hypertension, so their microvascular damage may be correlated. We investigated the relationship of renal function to the anatomical distribution of cerebral microbleeds (CMBs), a marker of underlying cerebral small vessel disease (hypertensive arteriopathy or cerebral amyloid angiopathy), in a Western patient cohort. This was a retrospective study of referrals to a hospital stroke service. All patients with clinical data and a… CONTINUE READING
