Associação entre acidentes vasculares encefálicos e doença de Chagas

Abstract: Foi pesquisada a freqüência de acidentes vasculares encefálicos (A VE)Nas áreas endêmicas da doença de Chagas (DC) parecem relativamente freqüentes os acidentes vasculares encefálicos (AVE) de natureza isquêmi-cal 9 11 13 Entretanto, ao que nos consta, não há estudos sistematizados sobre os AVE hemorrágicos, o que parece de interesse tendo em vista dados da literatura (ver revisão bibliográfica em Guariento5) que indicam ser a hipertensão arterial sistêmica, principal causa da hemorragia encefálica4 10, menos … Show more

“…Embolic accidents in the central nervous system are the most severe form of thromboembolism in CCC and contribute to the high morbidity and mortality of the disease (263) . The scientific basis for antithrombotic treatment in CCC is based on findings of a prospective cohort study of 1,043 cases, which assessed the risk and defined prevention strategies for cardioembolic stroke (CES) (264) .…”

“…Estudos de necropsia comparando chagásicos e não chagásicos não observaram diferença estatisticamente significativa em relação à presença de AVC nos dois grupos, sendo o AVCI mais freqüente nos chagásicos (75%) em relação aos não chagásicos (31,3%); o contrário foi observado em relação aos acidentes vasculares hemorrágicos (AVCH) (68,7% nos não chagásicos e 25% nos chagásicos), nos quais a presença de HAS teve papel importante 16 . O mesmo foi observado com dados de tomografia computadorizada 17 .…”
