What The Study Did: This observational study looked at the rate and risk factors of stroke caused by bleeding within the brain (intracerebral hemorrhage) between 1948 and 2016 among 10,000 participants in the Framingham Heart Study. There have been conflicting results in other studies on whether the rate of this often deadly type of stroke is changing.
