Hospitalizations, deaths from stroke and heart disease have fallen in past decade (August 19, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Connecticut - A new report published in Circulation finds that both hospitalizations and deaths from stroke and heart disease have fallen in the past 10 years. Researchers reviewed data on nearly 34 million US residents, examining trends in hospitalization and subsequent death with a month of being admitted, as well as readmission and death within a year. Results showed by the end of 2011, hospitalization dropped by 38% for heart attack, 83.8% for unstable angina and sudden chest pain, 30.5% for heart failure and 33.6% for stroke. Over the same time period, risk of dying within a year of hospitalization fell by 21% for unstable angina, 23% for heart attack and 13% for stroke.
