VERA MIYAR, Clara Raisa  and  MORALES PEREZ, Carlos. Enfermedad cerebrovascular: Seguimiento y rehabilitación en la comunidad. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2001, vol.17, n.1, pp.27-34. ISSN 0864-2125.

A study of adult patients who suffered cerebrovascular diseases (CVD) was conducted at 38 family physician's offices corresponding to the urban area of "Idalbero Revuelta" Polyclinic, in the city of Sagua la Grande, from September, 1995, to September, 1997. Their behavior and follow-up at the family physician's offices was determined and it was found a predominance in general of CVD of ischemic type in individuals over 63. Arterial hypertension was the fundamental risk factor, followed by smoking habit and heart diseases. Those patients with ischemic CVD that were mostly older adults had a greater capacity of independence compared with the hemorrhagic patients. This had a close relation with the therapeutic window and rehabilitation. Bronchopneumonia was the most frequent complication.

Keywords : CEREBRAL ISCHEMIA [rehabilitation]; RISK FACTORS; BRONCHOPNEUMONIA [complications].
