[Epidemiology of stroke in Kostroma].

[Article in Russian]


An epidemiological study was conducted in 2004-2006 in two districts of Kostroma with the total adult population 108 284 people (48 728 men, 59 556 women). Over the period studied, there were 630 patients with verified diagnosis of stroke. The stroke morbidity was 1.9-2.0 cases per 1000 people, ischemic strokes--1.5-1.8 (85%), hemorrhagic strokes--0.2-0.4 (15%) per 1000 people. The higher morbidity in men was reported. One hundred and seven patients (17%) had second stroke. The stroke morbidity was 0.6 per 1000 people in men and 0.4 in women, being higher for ischemic stroke. Mean fatality rate was 25.7%. The fatality rate for hemorrhagic stroke (up to 75% in 2004) was higher than for ischemic stroke (up to 23.5% in 2006).
