Resumen

FALCON VILAU, Leonel  y  FERNANDEZ-BRITTO RODRIGUEZ, José E. Aterosclerosis y muerte súbita: aplicación de una metodología para su estudio integral. Rev Cubana Invest Bioméd [online]. 1998, vol.17, n.2, pp.152-164. ISSN 0864-0300.

The paper presents a procedure made up of a feasible methodology implemented since 1985, with the objective of studying the pathomorphology and morphometry of sudden death in both the daily work of any Pathological Anatomy laboratory and research works. The basic working tool is the atherometric system (AS), a scientific system which is worldwide acknowledged for having been used in the ten-year research study (1986-1996) called Pathobiological Determinants of Atherosclerosis In Youth (PBDAY) by the World Health Organization. By using descriptive primary and relative arterial variables, the vector variables and the weighing or estimating variables for the severity of the atherosclerotic process, the system allows to characterize the atherosclerotic lesion in any artery, vascular sector or group of patients identified by any clinical or pathobiological characteristic. It also allows, through its respective variables, to describe and weigh the severity of the existing lesions of the analyzed organ (the heart in this case) and to establish in this way the co-relation between the atherosclerotic arterial lesion and its related organ lesions. Criteria are unified as to the definition, classification and comprehensive study of people who suddenly die from natural causes, which makes the study of this important cause of death easier and assures the strict scientific level of the data obtained from measurements and estimations.
