  1. Use of medicare claims data to estimate national trends in stroke incidence, 1985-1991.

    Article - En anglais

    Background and Purpose Although stroke mortality has been declining in the United States for decades, recent trends in stroke incidence based on national data have not been described.

    We used Medicare hospitalization data to estimate national trends in the incidence of stroke among Americans aged 70 years or older, and we provide evidence of the validity of the estimate.

    Methods We defined stroke as a principal diagnosis with International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification codes 430 to 434 or 436 to 437.

    We excluded many recurrent cases from the analysis by eliminating persons hospitalized for stroke during the 5 years preceding the index stroke.

    We calculated annual adjusted incidence rates and examined trends graphically.
