Resumen

RODRIGUEZ RUEDA, Juan Miguel et al. Behaviour of cerebrovascular disease in a period of two years. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2006, vol.35, n.4. ISSN 0138-6557.

A descriptive retrospective study was conducted to assess the behaviour of cerebrovascular disease in Santa Clara province from 2003 to 2004. The research included 54 patients of both sexes. The following variables were used: sex, race, age, personal pathological history related to the disease, type of encephalic vascular accident (ischemic and hemorrhagic), intracranial complications, lethality according to the type of encephalic vascular accident, discharge state (alive or dead), cause of death, and the performing or not of necropsy. There was a predominance of cerebrovascular disease in white male patients over 60 years old. A higher incidence of the ischemic encephalic vascular accidents was proved. Bronchopneumonia, coma and convulsions were the most frequent complications. Lethality was higher in hemorrhagic events as well as in patients with at least an associated disease. Respiratory sepsis was the main cause of death, followed by pulmonary thromboembolism. Statistical techniques were used according to the descriptive studies.
