Abstract

The purpose of this study was to obtain the overall characteristics and outcome in stroke patients in an urban area of Japan, in order to develop some strategies for a community-based care system for improvement of the prognosis and activities of daily life in stroke patients. The present study, based on 4 hospitals in Yao city in Osaka, showed results as follows: 1) The number of stroke patients discharged from 4 hospitals during a recent one year period was 377 (216 men and 161 women). 2) The proportion of patients who died was 27%. Of the living patients, the proportions of patients who had motor paralysis or speech disturbance at discharge were 54% and 27%, respectively. 3) The proportion of patients who were to return to their home was 77% for all living patients. The proportion of patients who were not able to walk by themselves, or needed assistance in at least one of the activities of daily life was 31% and 28%, respectively, for all living patients who were to return to their home. This study showed that stroke registry from major hospitals in an urban area is useful for obtaining the overall characteristics of stroke patients in the area and promote community-wide programs in the prevention and home care of stroke.
