Authors: Alvarado-Dulanto CM, Lazo Mde L, Loza-Herrera JD, Málaga G Abstract In Latin America, there is almost nonexistense information about the prognosis of patients with stroke.

We did a prospective cohort study, recruiting patients in the medicine service of a public hospital, and follow them up to one year after their first-ever stroke. We collected baseline data, such as previous medical history and information about their stroke. We found mortality proportions, differences among subgroups, and compared their ac...

In a moment I’ll show you a better form of vitamin C… and how you can take ...
