 Women at higher risk of post-stroke death than men
To investigate gender difference in mortality after stroke, Dr. Allan L. Anderson of the Hospital at Medical City Dallas in Texas and colleagues analyzed data from nearly 75,000 stroke patients treated at 195 hospitals between 1998 and 2000.
However, male stroke patients were 40% more likely than women to have acute kidney failure, and were nearly four times as likely to suffer from heart problems.
Anderson noted that the men appeared to have been a "sicker population," and were more likely to have suffered past heart attacks and to have type 2 diabetes or blood vessel disease.
