Extensive haemorrhagic transformation of infarct: might it be an important cause of primary intracerebral haemorrhage?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Data from prior studies using serial imaging and post mortem data support the possibility that at least some cases of apparent primary intracerebral haemorrhage are due to early haemorrhagic transformation of infarct. If some primary intracerabral haemorrhage is actually early haemorrhagic transformation of infarct, then secondary stroke prevention for ischaemic stroke might be appropriate and so future studies should obtain data to determine the frequency of early major haemorrhagic transformation of infarct.
