Introduction: Stroke is the third largest cause of mortality in India after heart attack and cancer. The stroke mortality rates are declining or stabilising in developed countries but there is concern over the emerging epidemic of stroke in India. Study of topographical distribution, seasonal...
- Risk factors for myocardial infarction case fatality and stroke case fatality in type 2 diabetes: UKPDS 66. Stevens, Richard J.; Coleman, Ruth L.; Adler, Amanda I.; Stratton, Irene M.; Matthews, David R.; Holman, Rury R. // Diabetes Care;Jan2004, Vol. 27 Issue 1, p201
Objective:Patients with diabetes have a higher case fatality rate in myocardial infarction (MI) or stroke than those without diabetes: that is, MI and stroke are more often fatal if diabetes is present. We investigated whether the risk of MI or stroke being fatal in type 2 diabetes...
- Risk factors for cerebrovascular and cardiovascular diseases beyond age 75 years. Mostafaie, N.; Huber, K.; Sebesta, C.; Krampla, W.; Jungwirth, S.; Zehetmayer, S.; Hinterberger, M.; Krugluger, W.; Tragl, K.; Fischer, P. // Journal of Neural Transmission;Nov2010, Vol. 117 Issue 11, p1247
Globally, cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the number one cause of all mortalities. Of these deaths, 7.6 million are due to heart attacks, and 5.7 millions are due to stroke. The Vienna Transdanube Aging Study (VITA), a population-based cohort study, enabled us to evaluate associations between...
- Behind the Headlines: Could a blood test predict heart risk? Tanday, Sanjay // GP: General Practitioner;1/19/2007, p29
The article informs that a blood test could predict stroke and myocardial infarction (MI) risk in chronic heart disease (CHD) patients. According to the author, the test is for the amino terminal of the BNP prohormone (NT-proBNP). He says that patients with the highest levels of NT-proBNP were...
