  • a Hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke events may not equal the total number of strokes because 42 strokes (n = 10 for CKD) were not able to be classified definitively as ischemic or hemorrhagic and 17 (n = 4 for CKD) individuals had both ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes at disparate follow-up times.
