Medical and patient communities call for urgent action to prevent stroke crisis in Latin America
Date:9/9/2011

le stroke in patients with AF, the most common, sustained abnormal heart rhythm and a major cause of stroke.

"This is an epidemic that is already happening. Stroke is a serious public health threat in Latin America," said Dr. Carlos Cant, Professor of Stroke Program at the Universidad Nacional Autnoma de Mxico; Founding Member of the Mexican Stroke Association. "Compared with the general population, people with atrial fibrillation have a significantly higher risk of stroke and these strokes tend to be more severe, cause greater disability and have worse outcomes. It is therefore likely that these strokes incur greater costs to healthcare systems, survivors and their families."

Atrial Fibrillation-Related Strokes Are Preventable

Action for Stroke Prevention's report highlights the magnitude of the impact of stroke in Latin America and outlines measures to prevent stroke in people who have AF. The under-diagnosis of AF, as well as suboptimal use of anticlotting therapies and side-effects of current treatments, mean that an unnecessary and heavy burden is placed on patients, their families and carers, as well as healthcare systems across the region. There are simple actions, which if taken now could prevent a substantial number of deaths, disabilities, and costs resulting from stroke.

Action for Stroke Prevention's recommendations, which are endorsed by 37 medical and patient organizations from Latin America and around the world include:

  • Improving awareness of the impact of AF and AF-related stroke
  • Developing methods for early and adequate diagnosis of AF and stroke risk assessment
  • Taking new and better approaches to prevent stroke in patients with AF
  • Facilitating the exchange of best practice between national governments in Latin America
  • Developing strategies to support adherence to guidelines
  • Providing equal and adequate administration of therapy for patients with AF across countries in
