On Saturday (29) is celebrated around the world the World Day to Combat stroke. In Brazil, the disease reaches 250 000 people every year, almost one every two minutes. More than half, about 130 thousand die from the disease and the survivors are facing varying degrees of sequelae in motor and sensory functions, mental, perceptual and language.

Only in SUS 200 000 hospitalizations for stroke each year with an expense of approximately R $ 270 million to state coffers, not to mention the loss of human lives. The problem can be treated up to 80% of cases, the first four hours, with the ability to remove the clot and restore blood flow. This can be done through catheters that remove the thrombus mechanically or by drugs that dissolve, explains the chairman of the Department of Hypertension Society of Cardiology (SBC), Marcus Vinicius Malachias Bolivar.

The later service is considered a major cause of disability in the population aged over 50 years, accounting for 10% of all deaths and 40% of early retirements in Brazil. We need to inform the population about the symptoms and more about the importance of controlling hypertension, since 60% of strokes are caused by untreated high blood pressure, says Malachi.

An uncontrolled hypertension has seven times more likely to suffer a stroke that he who keeps the pressure by 12 8. In Brazil there are 40 million people with hypertension, about 30% of the adult population. Less than 20% of them are under control, ie, about 32 million Brazilians are not the appropriate treatment of hypertension and are continually at risk of suffering a stroke, among other cardiovascular complications such as heart attacks, angina and heart failure, warns.
