METHODS The authors investigated 129 postmortem brains of hypertensive patients with and without ICH. Sixty-four patients had had deep (n = 40) or lobar (n = 24) ICH. Sixty-five patients without ICH served as controls. Established risk factors for ICH (age, gender, severity of hypertension, bleeding disorders, intake of anticoagulants, and chronic… CONTINUE READING
