The risk of developing a vascular event attributable to dyslipidemia is correlated with the time of exposure to abnormally high levels of cholesterols in the blood. The occurrence of this event can compromise the survival of patients. The aim of this study was to determine the death rate among young patients hospitalized for Cerebral Vascular Accident in whom dyslipidemia had been observed. The study was carried out for two years.
Among the 609 cases of Cerebral Vascular Accident, 76 patients were between 16 and 45 years of age. They were grouped into two categories: those who presented with cerebral infarctions and those who presented with non-traumatic cerebral hemorrhages. Lipid profiles were analyzed. The cholesterol levels (C-g/l) with the following values (C-T≥2.4; C-LDL≥1.6; C-HDL <0.4 and Triglycerides≥1.5) were considered abnormal. The death rate was calculated by category of Cerebral Vascular Accident.
Cerebral infarctions were the most predominant. The highest cumulative mortality rate (20/27) was observed in the age group of 36-45 years for the two Cerebral Vascular Accident categories. This age group corresponds to the economically productive population.
HDL-c fraction dyslipidemia is not uncommon in young people. High rates of mortality were observed in young normally active patients who presented with dyslipidemia, sedentary lifestyle and obesity. Carrying out recommended sports activities can help to significantly reduce the occurrence of vascular events to the brain.
