Background and Purpose— The ERMANCIA (Etude Réalisée en Martinique et Centrée sur l’Incidence de Accidents vasculaires cérébraux) study was designed to provide the first comparable epidemiological data on stroke in a black Caribbean population. Methods— ERMANCIA was a prospective community-based study performed in Martinique (French West Indies) from June 1, 1998, to May 31, 1999. The black at-risk population was approximately 360 000. Multiple sources were used to identify hospitalized and…

Five-Year Outcome of a Stroke Cohort in Martinique, French West Indies

These results highlight the very poor blood pressure control and the very high rate of cognitive impairment in Martinican patients after stroke and establish a poststroke prevention network in Martinique.

Five-Year Outcome of a Stroke Cohort in Martinique, French West Indies: Etude Réalisée en Martinique et Centrée sur l'Incidence des Accidents vasculaires cérebraux, Part 2

The results of ERMANCIA part 2 highlight the very poor blood pressure control and the very high rate of cognitive impairment in Martinican patients after stroke.

Trends in Incidence and Early Outcomes in a Black Afro-Caribbean Population From 1999 to 2012: Etude Réalisée en Martinique et Centrée sur l’Incidence des Accidents Vasculaires Cérébraux II Study

There has been a significant decrease in the age-specific first-ever stroke incidence in the Afro-Carribean population over 13 years and prevention policies seem effective, although prevention policies need to focus on new risk factors limitation and on male population adherence to prevention program.

Incidence and case fatality in the first prospective population-based stroke register established in southern Italy were comparable to those previously reported in northern and central Italy and other industrialized countries.

Stroke Incidence, Prognosis, 30-Day, and 1-Year Case Fatality Rates in Matão, Brazil: A Population-Based Prospective Study

The present results are similar to those obtained in other stroke population-based studies, and future studies in Matão will provide the opportunity to discover ways to decrease the stroke burden in Brazil.

Ethnic differences in incidence of stroke: prospective study with stroke register

Investigating ethnic differences in genetic, physiological, and behavioural risk factors for stroke require further elucidation to aid development of effective strategies for stroke prevention in multi-ethnic communities.

Variations in Stroke Incidence and Survival in 3 Areas of Europe

There were significant differences in the proportion of the subtypes of stroke between populations, with London having lower rates of cerebral infarction and higher rates of subarachnoid hemorrhage and unclassified stroke and 27% Dijon;P <0.001).

The frequency, causes and timing of death within 30 days of a first stroke: the Oxfordshire Community Stroke Project.

In a prospective, community-based study of 675 consecutive patients with a first-ever stroke, 129 deaths occurred within 30 days of the onset of symptoms, a case fatality rate (CFR) of 19%, there was a significant trend for CFR to increase with age and this was seen particularly in patients with cerebral infarction.

Stroke in a French prospective population study.

The results are in the mean similar to white occidental countries, but opposite to those observed in Japan; they emphasize the importance of the lacunar syndrome, and the seasonal variations in different types of stroke.

The Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Stroke Study: preliminary first-ever and total incidence rates of stroke among blacks.

The incidence rates among blacks in Greater Cincinnati were substantially greater than the rates among whites in Rochester, Minn, for all age categories except ages 75 and older, for which the rates were similar.

In addition to the impact of radiological imaging, increased contribution of patients with ischemic heart disease, and the possible detection of milder cases of stroke, other factors, which are undefined, may be contributing to the increased stroke incidence rates detected over the last 10 years.

The data from the Northern Manhattan Stroke Study suggest that part of the reported excess stroke mortality among blacks in the United States may be a reflection of racial/ethnic differences in stroke incidence.
