Relationship between Cardiovascular Events and Cerebral Apoplexy in the Elderly

Xiaoli Yan, Junhui Zhang, Lili Chen, Shilan Luo


The objective of the paper is to understand the epidemiological characteristics of cardiovascular risk factors of the elderly and to explore its relationship with cerebral apoplexy. Researchers followed patients with cardiovascular disease in a hospital, in which 157 of the patients had had previous cerebral apoplexy history and 1250 of them had not suffered from cerebral apoplexy. Each patient was scored by Framing-ham scale to predict and analyze the risk of cerebral apoplexy in the following 10 years. Single factor analysis and multifactor aggregation rate were used to analyze the risk factors and risk aggregation rate. The results show that the risk of cerebral apoplexy was significantly correlated with sex, diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and atrial fibrillation. The total risk factor aggregation rate and the 3 risk factor aggregation rates were different in gender, and the rate of the male was higher than that of the female. Therefore, the paper concludes that gender, hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and atrial fibrillation are independent risk factors of cerebral apoplexy.
