Abstract

Cerebrovascular and hypertensive diseases are among the main causes of death worldwide. However, there are limited data about the trends of these diseases over the years. To evaluate the temporal trends in mortality rates and proportional mortality from cerebrovascular and hypertensive diseases according to sex and age in Brazil between 1980 and 2012. We evaluated the underlying causes of death between 1980 and 2012 in both sexes and by age groups for circulatory diseases (CD), cerebrovascular diseases (CBVD), and hypertensive diseases (HD). We also evaluated death due to all causes (AC), external causes (EC), and ill-defined causes of death (IDCD). Data on deaths and population were obtained from the Department of Information Technology of the Unified Health System (Departamento de Informática do Sistema Único de Saúde, DATASUS/MS). We estimated crude and standardized annual mortality rates per 100,000 inhabitants and percentages of proportional mortality rates. With the exception of EC, the mortality rates per 100,000 inhabitants of all other diseases increased with age. The proportional mortality of CD, CBVD, and HD increased up to the age range of 60-69 years in men and 70-79 years in women, and reached a plateau in both sexes after that. The standardized rates of CD and CBVD declined in both sexes. However, the HD rates showed the opposite trend and increased mildly during the study period. Despite the decline in standardized mortality rates due to CD and CBVD, there was an increase in deaths due to HD, which could be related to factors associated with the completion of the death certificates, decline in IDCD rates, and increase in the prevalence of hypertension. As doenças cerebrovasculares e hipertensivas estão entre as principais causas de óbito no mundo. Porém, existem poucos dados sobre o comportamento destas doenças ao longo dos anos. Avaliar a evolução temporal das taxas de mortalidade e mortalidade proporcional por doenças cerebrovasculares e hipertensivas, de acordo com sexo e idade, no Brasil entre 1980 e 2012. Foram avaliadas as causas básicas de óbito, entre 1980 e 2012, em ambos os sexos e por grupos etários, para as doenças do aparelho circulatório (DAC), doenças cerebrovasculares (DCBV) e doenças hipertensivas (DHIP). Foram também avaliadas todas as causas (TC), causas externas (CE) e causas mal definidas (CMD) de óbito. Dados sobre óbitos e população foram obtidos do Departamento de Informática do Sistema Único de Saúde (DATASUS). Foram estimadas as taxas anuais brutas e padronizadas de mortalidade por 100.000 habitantes e os percentuais dos coeficientes de mortalidade proporcional. Com exceção das CE, nas demais ocorreu elevação das taxas de mortalidade por 100 mil habitantes com o avanço da idade. Nas DAC, DCBV e DHIP, a mortalidade proporcional cresceu até a faixa dos 60-69 anos nos homens, e até 70-79 anos nas mulheres, com posterior estabilização em ambos os sexos. As taxas padronizadas de DAC e DCBV em ambos os sexos declinaram. Entretanto, as taxas de DHIP apresentaram comportamento oposto e aumentaram discretamente no período estudado. Apesar do declínio nas taxas de mortalidade padronizadas para as DAC e DCBV, houve crescimento dos óbitos por DHIP, o que pode estar relacionado a fatores ligados ao preenchimento das declarações de óbito, declínio das taxas de CMD e aumento na prevalência de hipertensão.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 21 July 2016.
All research outputs
#12,109,205
of 13,643,660 outputs
Outputs from Arquivos Brasileiros de Cardiologia
#444
of 513 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#220,883
of 262,542 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Arquivos Brasileiros de Cardiologia
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,643,660 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 513 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.0. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 262,542 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
