Exploration of racial and ethnic differences contributing to cerebral hemorrhage recurrence


  • Black and Hispanic survivors of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) have more pronounced cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD) at the time of the initial ICH, which contributes to discrepancies in risk of ICH recurrence; CSVD subtypes also differ between minority ICH survivors.

Why this matters

  • It is well known that Black and Hispanic individuals are at higher risk of ICH recurrence, but the reasons behind this disparity are not fully understood.

  • Risk factors identified in this study will aid in future clinical research and in recurrent stroke prevention in minority populations.
