We developed a model identifying patients with previous cerebral ischaemia at increased risk of intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH). Based on data from eight cohorts, 107 ICHs were found to have occurred among 12648 patients. Multivariate Cox regression analysis identified the following predictors: age (⩾60 years, hazard ratio (HR) 2.07), blood glucose level (⩾7 mmol/l, HR 0.33), systolic blood pressure (⩾140 mm Hg, HR 2.17), and antihypertensive drugs (HR 1.53). The highest risk quartile was associated with five times more ICHs than the lowest quartile.

    Mutations in the protein alpha-synuclein (SNCA) have been linked to Parkinson's disease. We recently reported that non-mutated SNCA enhanced glucose uptake through the Gab1-PI3 kinase-Akt pathway and elucidated its effects on glucose regulation. Here, we examined the association of SNCA with...

    Blood pressure management in acute intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) relies on functioning cerebral autoregulation. The time course of autoregulation in acute ICH and its relation with clinical outcome are not known. Twenty-six patients with spontaneous ICH were studied on days 1, 3 and 5 after...

    BACKGROUND The transient blood pressure (BP) rise during clinical visits is usually referred to as white-coat effect (WCE). The aim of the present study was to investigate factors that may influence the WCE. METHODS A total of 2004 subjects underwent office BP measurements and 24-h ambulatory BP...

    Objectives: Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) occurs usually from the rupture of vessels into the brain parenchyma and accounts for approximately 10% of all strokes. ICH occurs more commonly in Turkey than in other western countries and carries a significantly high mortality than ischemic stroke...

    Plaque haemorrhage (PH) in atherosclerotic plaques is associated with recurrent thromboembolic ischaemic events. The healing process predominantly involves the repair of the plaque rupture site and the replacement of fresh PH with chronic PH, which is either reabsorbed or replaced by fibrous...
