New Health Report Exposes Imminent Risk of a Stroke Crisis in Europe
Date:12/8/2009

    BRUSSELS, December 9 /PRNewswire/ --

    - A report launched today by experts from medical and patient communities
      calls on Europe's policy makers to take urgent action against
      preventable strokes that strike thousands of atrial fibrillation (AF)
      patients each year

    - Affecting over six million people in Europe[1], AF, the most common,
      sustained abnormal heart rhythm, increases the risk of stroke five-
      fold[2] and is responsible for 15-20% of all strokes caused by blood
      clots (ischaemic stroke)[2],[3]

    - The consequences of stroke can devastate not only a patient's quality
      of life[4], but also that of families and carers[5]

    - The economic burden of stroke on the European economy is estimated at a
      staggering EUR 38 billion per annum[6]

    - The impact of stroke is predicted to rise dramatically as the number of
      individuals affected by AF is expected to increase 2.5 fold by
      2050[7],[8] due to an ageing population[7] and improved survival of
      patients with conditions which predispose AF (e.g. heart attack) [9]

    - Many AF-related strokes could be prevented by earlier detection and
      improved treatment of AF[10]

Urgent coordinated action is needed to avoid the thousands of preventable strokes that leave many atrial fibrillation (AF) patients mentally and physically disabled or dead, every year. A report, How Can We Avoid a Stroke Crisis?, launched in the European Parliament today by Action for Stroke Prevention, a group of health experts from across Europe, proposes measures to tackle stroke in patients with AF, the most common, sustained abnormal heart rhythm and a major cause of stroke[1]. Their proposal, endorsed by 17 leading European medical professional and patient organisations, calls for EU policy makers and Member State governments to act before the increasing frequency of these strokes becomes a major public health crisis.'/>"/>
