  1. Registry of first-ever stroke in Tartu, Estonia, 1991 through 1993 : outcome of stroke.

    Article - En anglais

    Objectives

    To provide information about the functional ability of the survivors of first-ever stroke in Estonia.

    Patients and methods

    A population based epidemiological study 1991 through 1993 in Tartu.

    Herewith the data for 1991 and 1993 are presented.

    A total of 519 persons were registered ; 82% of them were admitted (mean length 14 days), 66% were discharged home.

    Results

    During 6 months 41% of the patients died, the remaining 305 patients were interviewed about their living conditions, and functional ability using the Barthel ADL Index.

    Although 58% of patients responded to the questionnaire, no significant differences in several factors between the respondents and non-respondents were found.

    Thirty-eight percent of the patients were totally independent in ADL.

    Conclusion

    The case-fatality rate at 6 months was high in Estonia and the proportion of totally independent patients 6 months after stroke is slightly lower compared to other studies.

    The short length of hospital treatment was possibly compensated by sufficient support by relatives after discharge.
