Author response: Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and risk of intracerebral hemorrhage: A prospective study


We appreciate the comment by Sampietro et al. on our article.1 We did not collect specific information on statin use in the current study. We, thus, cannot examine whether statin use was associated with altered risk of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). Further studies are warranted to understand a relationship between lipid-lowering medication use and risk of ICH. We agree with you that it is important to “obtain an optimal balance between cardiovascular risk reduction, hemorrhagic risk avoidance, and mitigation of side effects related to lipid-lowering therapy.”
