The Hamburg Stroke Data Bank: goals, design and preliminary results.

Author information

Neurologische Universitätsklinik Hamburg-Eppendorf, Federal Republic of Germany.


A stroke data bank has been developed which consists of 1500 items, including clinical and laboratory findings, past medical history, treatment and outcome. In addition to previously published registries, the Hamburg Stroke Data Bank allows storage of time-dependent data: multiple findings can be entered at different times after stroke onset. The data bank runs on any MS-DOS microcomputer and can be operated without computer knowledge. The stroke registry is conceived to support a prospective, local, multicentre study of stroke. This paper describes objectives, data bank structure and preliminary results of the pilot phase, which includes data of 441 patients with completed stroke and reversible ischaemic deficits. Demographic characteristics, incidence of stroke types, associated risk factors and outcome are evaluated.
