Prognostic Factors Associated with Mortality Related to Stroke in Bangui (Central African Republic)

Abstract : Stroke is a very common neurological condition that causes permanent disability in half of the cases, at least in sub-Saharan Africa. They represent the second most common cause of death in Africa. Objective of this study was to evaluate the prognostic value of the intake period of patients suffering from these conditions on the survival time of one month of hospitalization in hospitals in Bangui. We conducted a prospective study cross prognostic kind in the neurology departments, internal medicine and intensive care units of two large central hospitals from February to August 2017. Subject recruitment was complete with a made questionnaire based on the modified one of the World Health Organization on neurological disorders. A total of 154 patients were included, with a mean age of 63.15 years ± 10.98 and extremes ranging from 38 to 91 years. A male predominance was noted (60%) with a sex ratio (M/F) of 1.5. For 76 subjects (49.35%), care was taken with a hospital admission period of less than or equal to one day, while for 78 other 78 (50.65%) the admission period was higher to one day. Average admission time patients caught early was 1.00 day and the upper limit intake to one day was 4.59 ± 2.33 days with a statistically significant difference (p < 0.0001). Median admission delay for patients treated late was 4 days. Pre-hospital and hospital determinants by admission delay are presented in Table 1. The survival time was better in the group of patients who were treated early (p = 0.0039). This study shows the negative impact of late management on the survival time of patients.
