Abstract:

In 1959 the World Federation of Neurology initiated a series of epidemiological studies in cerebro-vascular disease, with the purpose of establishing the importance of various factors, including geographic, climatic, racial, nutritional and occupational, upon the spread of degenerative arterial disease of the brain, as well as on its course, frequency, intensity and distribution. Several papers on the subject have already been published (Baker and Iannone 1959a-c, 1961; Baker et al. 1960, 1961). These studies were carried out on material from two different centres, namely the United States and Norway. In Poland, epidemiological studies on brain atheroma, carried out according to WFN standards, were started in 1960. They were made upon casematerial from Warsaw, a large administrative, cultural and partly industrial centre. Studies going on at present are being carried out in two other regions of Poland - in the neighbourhood of Lublin, a rural part of the country, and in Bydgoszcz, a large industrial centre. The material, made up of data from these three centres, should be representative of Poland. Data previously collected have been published in several papers in which more detailed questions were discussed (Majdecki and Zelman 1961; Dambska, Kraśnicka, Mandybur, Wiśniewski, in the press).The aim of the present work is to analyze the frequency and intensity of atheromatous changes in the larger arteries of the brain in the Polish population along the lines of the work done by Baker and Iannone (I959a-c) and by Baker et al. (I960) on Norwegian and American material.
