Study Synopsis

Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) or bleeding in the brain is the second most common type of stroke. High blood pressure is a major cause of ICH. Hispanic, African American, and younger patients are disproportionately affected more by this stroke type. Patients with ICH have very high rates of early death and long-term disability. There is no proven treatment for ICH, and the level of care or type of hospital where different ICH patients need to be treated is unknown.

The EnRICH study is enrolling ICH patients across four large metropolitan areas in Texas. Patients are enrolled from large treatment centers and community hospitals and are followed for long-term outcomes. These data will provide evidence regarding the potential benefit to ICH patients from being managed at a higher level of care (i.e. large stroke treatment centers across the state of Texas). Aspects of ICH care that influence long-term functional and cognitive outcomes are also being studied. In doing so, the study will help guide the development of protocols for optimal management of patients with ICH at hospitals with different levels of care.
