  1. Trends in stroke incidence and mortality in Hawaiian Japanese men.

    Article - En anglais

    Background and Purpose Vital statistics show a sharp decline in stroke mortality since the late 1960s.

    It is not clear whether this has been associated with a decline in stroke incidence.

    Methods Since 1966 the Honolulu Heart Program has monitored the incidence and mortality of coronary heart disease and stroke in a target population of 11 136 men of Japanese ancestry living on Oahu.

    Trends were analyzed from January 1,1969, through December 31,1988.

    Results Of 7893 men aged 45 to 68 years and free of stroke at entry examination, 530 developed first episodes of stroke in the period 1969 to 1988 (389 cases of thromboembolic stroke, 124 cases of hemorrhagic stroke, and 17 cases of stroke of unknown type).
