No mapa dos AVC na Europa Portugal está no verde (decréscimo em quase todas as categorias menos nos hemorrágicos e hemorragia subaracnoidea)

Os últimos 35 anos viram um grande declínio nas taxas de mortalidade por doenças cerebrovasculares na maioria dos países. Embora essas quedas tenham continuado de forma constante em mais da metade países, esta análise revelou evidências de recentes estabilizações e até mesmo aumento da mortalidade por AVC em vários países, em ambos os sexos, e em todos os quatro sub-regiões geográficas da Europa. Análise por sub-tipo de acidente vascular cerebral revelou que uma estabilização das taxas recente que foi mais comum para o AVC hemorrágico e os aumentos foram mais comuns para acidente vascular cerebral isquêmico.. Foram estas as conclusões de um estudo recente publicado no Eur Heart J. 2018 Aug 14.

AIMS: There have been substantial declines in cerebrovascular disease mortality across much of Europe, mirroring trends in deaths from cardiovascular disease as a whole. No study has investigated trends in cerebrovascular disease, and its subtypes within all European countries. This study aimed to examine sex-specific trends in cerebrovascular disease, and three of its sub-types: ischaemic stroke, haemorrhagic stroke, and subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH), in Europe between 1980 and 2016.

METHODS AND RESULTS: Sex-specific mortality data for each country of the World Health Organization (WHO) Europe region were extracted from the WHO global mortality database and analysed using Joinpoint software to examine trends. The number and location of significant joinpoints for each country by sex and subtype was determined using a log-linear model. The annual percentage change within each segment was calculated along with the average annual percentage change over the duration of all available data. The last 35 years have seen large overall declines in cerebrovascular disease mortality rates in the majority of European countries. While these declines have continued steadily in more than half of countries, this analysis has revealed evidence of recent plateauing and even increases in stroke mortality in a number of countries, in both sexes, and in all four geographical sub regions of Europe. Analysis by stroke sub-type revealed that recent plateauing was most common for haemorraghic stroke and increases were most common for ischaemic stroke.

CONCLUSION: These findings highlight the need for continued research into the inequalities in both current stroke mortality outcomes and trends across Europe, as well as the causes behind any recent plateauing of total cerebrovascular disease or its subtypes.
