Longitudinal relationship between chronic kidney disease and distribution of cerebral microbleeds in patients with ischemic stroke

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) has been reported to be independently associated with cerebral microbleeds (CMB). Since both glomerular afferent arterioles and cerebral perforating arteries are strain vessels, CKD and CMB may share similar dynamic changes. To clarify whether CKD and CKD progression are related to the distribution and evolution of CMB in patients with ischemic stroke. We retrospectively examined the data from the CASISP study. 500 patients with ischemic stroke were analyzed. The number and distribution of CMB were assessed using Microbleed Anatomical Rating Scale. Renal function was evaluated by the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and proteinuria. 51 (10.2%) and 158 (31.6%) had decreased eGFR (<60ml/min/1.73m(2)) and CMB at baseline, respectively; 31 (6.6%) and 84 (16.8%) had CKD and CMB progression. Decreased eGFR at baseline (OR=1.533, 95% CI: 1.111-2.114; p=0.009), proteinuria (OR=1.778, 95% CI: 1.026-3.083; p=0.040), CKD progression (OR=2.004, 95% CI: 1.191-3.370; p=0.009) and history of hypertension (OR=2.084, 95% CI: 1.241-3.49; p=0.005) were independently associated with the presence of deep or infratentorial CMB at follow-up. CMB progression in deep or infratentorial area was more frequent in pa...Continue Reading
