These two disorders are characterized by different patterns of microbleeds distribution: hypertensive vasculopathy is usually associated with CMBs in the basal ganglia, thalamus, brainstem, and cerebellum [27], whereas CAA is associated with lobar distribution [28].
Although numerous observational and randomised trials showed statistical benefits in respect of practically all functional parameters, minimal clinically important differences (MICDs) were significantly more likely to be observed in patients with advanced heterogeneous emphysema and no collateral ventilation and in those in whom unilateral valve placement achieved complete lobar collapse.
Furthermore, the mean duration of hospitalisation in children with lobar pneumonia was significantly longer than the corresponding values for those with bronchopneumonia (p=0.
