Abstract

AIM: Hypertension is a primary risk factor for intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) and is thought to be responsible for about 55% of all ICH cases. Thus, the primary goal of the study was to examine whether the status of vascular rheological factors upon admission to the hospital was associated with hypertensive ICH growth and early outcomes.
