Risk Factors for Hemorrhagic and Cardioembolic Complications of Intracerebral Hemorrhage Associated with Anticoagulants


Background: Patients with intracerebral hemorrhage taking anticoagulants are increasingly common in Japan due to the aging population. The clinical benefit of restarting anticoagulants is established, but the optimal timing of resumption is controversial. Risk factors for hemorrhagic and cardioembolic events in the acute phase are also unknown. This study investigated hemorrhagic and cardioembolic events and risk factors in intracerebral hemorrhage patients taking anticoagulants. Methods: The clinical data of 65 consecutive intracerebral hemorrhage patients taking anticoagulants were retrospectively reviewed.
