ARAUZ, Antonio  y  RUIZ-FRANCO, Angélica. Cerebrovascular disease. Rev. Fac. Med. (Méx.) [online]. 2012, vol.55, n.3, pp.11-21. ISSN 2448-4865.

Cerebrovascular Disease (CVD) is a public health problem. According to World Health Organization, stroke is the second leading cause of overall death (9.7%), of which 4.95 million occur in countries with low and middle income. The rate of recurrence at two years, ranges from10 to 22%, but it can be reduced by up to 80%, with the modification of risk factors. In the absence of appropriate preventive interventions, it is estimated that by 2030, its incidence will increase up to 44%.4 Data from the ministry of health of Mexico show that in our country stroke mortality rate has increased from the year 2000, particularly in adults younger than 65. In 2007 the total number of discharges in public hospitals 1% was attributed to stroke, while in 2008 the mortality rate was 28.3/100,000. The present review addresses the most relevant aspects of the main types of stroke, ischemia, intracerebral hemorrhage and subarachnoid hemorrhage.

Palabras llave : stroke; intracerebral hemorrhage; subarachnoid hemorrhage.
