  1. Risk factors of stroke incidence and mortality : a 12-year follow-up of the Oslo study.

    Article - En anglais

    Background and Purpose

    The objective of this study was to determine the risk factors of stroke incidence and mortality.


    Our data are based on a prospective cohort study of men aged 40 to 49 years after 12 years of follow-up.


    In age-adjusted Cox proportional-hazards regression analysis of 14 403 healthy men, diastolic blood pressure was a stronger predictor for stroke incidence and mortality than systolic blood pressure.

    Smoking was a stronger predictor of mortality than of incidence.

    However, there was no dose-response relation among smokers by increased cigarette consumption.

    Total serum cholesterol was a significant (P<.05) risk factor for stroke mortality and of borderline significance (P=.08) for stroke incidence.
