ACOSTA TABARES, Silvio; TOLEDO MILIAN, Roberto  and  BATAILLE CERIANI, Mercedes. Caracterización de la enfermedad cerebrovascular isquémica en el servicio de medicina del hospital de Guanajay. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2001, vol.17, n.6, pp.553-558. ISSN 0864-2125.

A case-control study was conducted aimed at characterizing the ischemic cerebrovascular disease (ICVD) clinical and epidemiologically. The group of cases was made up of 52 patients discharged with the diagnosis of ischemic ictus, whereas the control group was composed of the same number of patients who did not suffer from it. It was determined a prevalence similar to that of other studies at world scale, with a higher incidence of the disease among white male patients aged 60 and over. The risk factors with statistical significance were sedentarism, inadequate diets, smoking and hypercholesterolemia. Arterial hypertension showed force of association as a family and personal history with 44.3 % for both. Cerebral thrombosis was the prevailing clinical form (63.5 %).
