Key PointsQuestionIs there an association between intracerebral hemorrhage and an increased risk of arterial ischemic events? FindingsIn this individual pooled study of longitudinal data on nearly 50 000 participants from 4 population-based cohort studies, intracerebral hemorrhage was associated with an approximately 2-fold increased risk of ischemic stroke and myocardial infarction, independent of vascular risk factors and antithrombotic medication use. MeaningThis study suggests that intracerebral hemorrhage may be a novel marker of risk for subsequent arterial ischemic disease.
