Abstract

To investigate the longitudinal trend of nontraumatic subarachnoid haemorrhage SAH, we analyzed the annual population-based incidence and mortality rate of nontraumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage in Taiwan. Logistic regression was used to identify independent predictors of mortality. The average incidence rate IR of nontraumatic SAH was per 100,000 per year. The prevalence of female patients was higher than in the male population 54.5% versus 45.5%. The average age of these patients was and females were older than males versus , . Of these patients, 97.6% 611-626 were treated with surgical intervention with clipping procedure and 2.9% 18-626 with coiling. Total mortality of these patients was 13.4% 84-626. In adjusted analysis, age odds ratio OR, 0.97; 95% confidence interval CI, 0.98-0.98; and Charlson comorbidity index OR, 0.709; 95% CI, 0.57–0.88; remained independent predictors of the mortality. Patients with nontraumatic SAH had a much higher prevalence in older age groups and in females than in the general population. Patients with old age and more comorbidity have higher mortality. Aggressive management of patients might reduce the initial mortality; however, patient outcome still remains poor.
