Multivariable models were generated to determine the contribution of CKD to the presence, number, and location of CMB.Abstract: RESULTS: Of 197 subjects with imaging data, mean age was 59 years, 48% were women, 73% were black, 114 (58%) had >=1 CMBs, and 52 (26%) had CKD. Overall, CKD was associated with presence of CMB (adjusted odds ratio, 2.70; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.10-6.59) and number of CMB (adjusted relative risk, 2.04; 95% CI, 1.27-3.27). CKD was associated with CMB presence (adjusted odds ratio, 3.44; 95% CI, 1.64-7.24) and number (adjusted relative risk, 2.46; 95% CI, 1.11-5.42) in black patients, but not CMB presence (adjusted odds ratio, 3.00; 95% CI, 0.61-14.86) or number (adjusted relative risk, 1.03; 95% CI: 0.22-4.89) in non-Hispanic white patients (interactions by race were statistically not significant).Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: CKD is associated with a greater presence and number of CMB in ICH patients, particularly in patients of black race. Future studies should assess whether low estimated glomerular filtration rate may be a CMB risk marker or potential therapeutic target for mitigating the development of CMB.
