To the Editor: Dr He and colleagues1 claim that the overall benefit of aspirin use on myocardial infarction and ischemic stroke outweighs its risk of hemorrhagic stroke in most populations. However, they also suggest that the risk-benefit ratio of aspirin treatment for prevention of cardiovascular disease in populations with a high risk of hemorrhagic stroke should be addressed in subsequent studies.
