Mortality from Circulatory System Diseases and Malformations inChildren in the State of Rio de Janeiro

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Background: The epidemiological profile of mortality in a population is important for theinstitution of measures to improve health care and reduce mortality

Objective: To estimate mortality rates and the proportional mortality fromcardiovascular diseases and malformations of the circulatory system inchildren and adolescents.

Methods: This is a descriptive study of mortality from cardiovascular diseases,malformations of the circulatory system, from all causes, ill-defined causesand external causes in children and adolescents in the state of Rio deJaneiro from 1996 to 2012. Populations were obtained from the BrazilianInstitute of Geography and Statistics (Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia eEstatística - IBGE) and deaths obtained from the Department ofInformatics of the Unified Health System (DATASUS)/Ministry of Health.

Results: There were 115,728 deaths from all causes, 69,757 in males. The annualmortality from cardiovascular diseases was 2.7/100,000 in men and2.6/100,000 in women. The annual mortality from malformations of thecirculatory system was 7.5/100,000 in men and 6.6/100,000 in women. Amongthe specific causes of circulatory diseases, cardiomyopathies had thehighest rates of annual proportional mortality, and from malformations ofthe circulatory system, it occurred due to unspecified malformations of thecirculatory system, at all ages and in both genders.

Conclusion: Mortality from malformations of the circulatory system was most striking inthe first years of life, while cardiovascular diseases were more relevant inadolescents. Low access to prenatal diagnosis or at birth probably preventedthe proper treatment of malformations of the circulatory system.

f2: Annual proportional mortality from specific causes of malformations ofthe circulatory system in children and adolescents, by gender and agegroup in the state of Rio de Janeiro, from 1996 to 2012. MCS:malformations of the circulatory system.

Mentions: The greatest proportional mortality from MCS occurred from unspecified MCS accordingto ICD 10, at all ages and in both genders. They were followed by cardiac septaldefects, except in the group of children younger than 1 year in both genders, inwhom malformations of the great arteries came next. In adolescent males, the secondposition was occupied by malformations of other vessels (Figure 2).
