    Article - En anglais

    Background and Purpose

    Age-adjusted stroke mortality rates declined approximately 5% between 1970 and 1990 in both the United States and Minnesota, but the reasons for this decline are not clear.

    This report examines possible improvements in short- and long-term survival of hospitalized definite stroke patients in the Minneapolis-St Paul (the Twin Cities) metropolitan area during this period.


    Fifty percent random samples of patients discharged with an acute stroke diagnosis from area hospitals were selected in 1970 (n=1200), 1980 (n=1040), and 1985 (n=896).

    Trained nurses abstracted pertinent clinical data from the hospital charts.

    By standardized clinical criteria similar to World Health Organization criteria (without computed tomography data), 376, 442, and 453 definite strokes were established for 1970, 1980, and 1985, respectively.
