Analysis of 30-Day Stroke Mortality in a Community-Based Registry in Warsaw, Poland
Between January 1, 1991, and December 31, 1992, in the Upper Mokotow District of Warsaw, Poland (Population 182,285), 462 First-Ever-In-A-Lifetime (FEL) Strokes Were Registered, 12% (55/462) with Parenchymatous Intracerebral Hemorrhages (PICH) and 88% (407/462) with Ischemic Strokes. Confirmation by Either Computed Tomography or Autopsy Was Made in 72.3% of Cases. the overall 30-Day Case Fatality Rate (CFR) for FEL Strokes Was 40% (186/462), 60% for PICH (33/55), and 38% for Ischemic Stroke (153/407). of the 186 Patients Who Died within 30 Days of their FEL Stroke, 49% (91) Underwent Full Autopsy Examination. Fifty-Two Percent of These 91 Patients Were Found to Have Died from Direct Neurological Sequelae, 21% from Cardiac Causes, 17% from Pneumonia, 5.6% from Septicemia, 2.2% from Pulmonary Emboli, and 2.2% from Metastatic Cancer. Despite Our High 30-Day Stroke CFR Compared with Western Europe and North America, Mechanisms of Death Were Similar. © 1994, National Stroke Association. All Rights Reserved.
