摘要The Shatin Stroke Registry is a prospective study of all patients admitted with acute stroke to a general hospital in Hong Kong where the population is predominantly Chinese. Each patient was examined by a neurologist and 95.5% of the patients had a brain CT. Of 777 patients included in the study, 44.0% had a cortical/subcortical infarct, 18.5% a supratentorial lacunar infarct, 24.2% a supratentorial intracerebral hemorrhage, 5.8% brainstem/cerebellar infarct, 2.9% a brainstem/cerebellar hemorrhage, and 4.5% an uncertain diagnosis. The overall 30-day case fatality rate was 25.4%. Comparison with five stroke registries from the West suggests that intracerebral hemorrhage occurs between two and three times more frequently in the Chinese than in Westerners. Whether there is any difference in the relative frequencies for lacunar infarction remains unclear.
