STATINS USE IN INRACEREBRAL HEMORRHAGE PATIENTS (SATURN)

Brief description of study

This research is being done to find out if it is better to continue or discontinue statin drugs in people who had a brain hemorrhage while taking a statin drug. Statin drugs help prevent heart disease and ischemic stroke. Ischemic strokes are caused by a clot in a blood vessel that blocks blood flow to a part of the brain. However, statin drugs might increase the risk of having another brain hemorrhage in some people that already had a brain hemorrhage. Having certain Apolipoprotein-E genes might make some people more likely to have another brain hemorrhage while taking statin drugs. This study is also being done to see if you have one of these Apolipoprotein-E genes and to examine whether having these genes actually increases the risk of brain hemorrhage in people who take statin drugs.
