Smoking and the risk of hemorrhagic stroke in men.

Men who are cigarette smokers may have a high tendency to suffer from hemorrhagic stroke.

​The objective of this study was to determine whether an association exists between cigarette smoking and the incidence of hemorrhagic stroke in men. A group of Harvard researchers surveyed more than 20,000 US male physicians for 17.8 years. During the course of the study, 108 and 31 cases of intracranial hemorrhage and subarachnoid hemorrhage were recorded. 

The team of investigators noted that cigarette smoking was associated with increased risk of hemorrhagic stroke in men. The results of this study suggest that male cigarette smokers may be more liable to suffer from hemorrhagic stroke than non-smokers.
