Silent cerebral microbleeds (MBs) are a common finding in stroke patients, especially those with intracerebral hemorrhage, and are thought to be a marker of future cerebral hemorrhage. Clinically, two distinct forms of MBs have been documented, those observed with either or both stroke or small vessel disease (SVD) and those associated with cerebral amyloid angiopathy. We investigated a possible association between MBs and arterial stiffness in a general population. Subjects were 443 apparently… CONTINUE READING
