DESCRIPTION

A Danish population-based study demonstrated that the risk of ischemic stroke was high after intra-cerebral hemorrhage among patients with atrial fibrillation treated with warfarin. Researchers were not able to completely confirm that it was the cessation of warfarin, per se, that led to the increased risk of ischemic stroke.
