Among platelet aggregation inhibitors, carbasalate calcium was more commonly used than aspirin by the cohort.
Compared with patients who did not use anti-clotting drugs, those who took aspirin or carbasalate calcium were more likely to have cerebral microbleeds visible on MRI.
These included aspirin and carbasalate calcium-called platelet aggregation inhibitors because they prevent the accumulation of platelets that form blood clots.
In the years before MRI, 363 (34.2 percent) of the participants had used any anti-clotting drugs, including 245 (23.1 percent) who took platelet aggregation inhibitors (67 taking aspirin and 141 taking carbasalate calcium).
Microbleeds in the frontal lobe were more common among aspirin users than carbasalate calcium users.
Patients on the oral regimens received either placebo pills or 100 mg of calcium carbasalate (a salt formulation of aspirin equivalent to 80 mg of aspirin).
