Disturbed balance of MMP9 and TIMP3 in vessels of CAA-ICH cases. The ratio of MMP9-stained (partially or fully) to TIMP3-stained (partially or fully) leptomeningeal vessels (a) and  cortical vessels (b) was higher in CAA-ICH cases compared to CAA-NH casesIn CAA-NH cases, there was a positive correlation between the numbers of cortical vessels stained (partially or fully) for MMP9 and the numbers of cortical vessels stained (partially or fully) for TIMP3 (c). Such a correlation was not seen in CAA-ICH cases (d). Box plots show median values with the 25th and 75th percentile as boundaries and whiskers indicating minimum and maximum values. CAA-NH = CAA-non haemorrhagic, CAA-ICH = CAA-related ICH, *p ≤ 0.05; ***p ≤ 0.001, rs = Spearman r
